New NU stem-cell gel advances spinal injury research

Abstract:
In a study that could lead to new treatments for spinal cord injury, Northwestern University researchers have coaxed neural stem cells to grow in a specially engineered gel that could be injected directly to a site of spinal damage. Experts said the unique gel has many potential applications in a new field of research that combines stem-cell research and tissue engineering. The possibilities include treatment of brain disease or delivering insulin to diabetes patients.
