Tapping into Pluripotent Differentiation Potentials of Embryonic Stem Cells

Using the pluripotent embryonic stem cells as a model system, scientists at NCCS are investigating the epigenetic factors and molecular determinants which are involved in deciding and controlling differentiation of stem cells into specific cellular lineages. Continue reading

An Elegant Model for Studying Early Embryonic Development

Scientists at NCCS are studying the early embryonic development using embryonic stem cells derived from the blastula stage embryo. These embryonic stem cells possess unique characteristics of indefinite self renewal and pluripotency; and are capable of precisely recapitulating the early embryogenic development, thereby serving as an elegant model for studying the developmental events occurring during embryogenesis.
