Findings from University of California in Stem Cells Reported (Current trends in bone tissue engineering)

July 21, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Stem Cell Week -- Current study results on Stem Cell Research have been published. According to news reporting out of Los Angeles, California, by NewsRx editors, research stated, "The development of tissue engineering and regeneration constitutes a new platform for translational medical research. Effective therapies for bone engineering typically employ the coordinated manipulation of cells, biologically active signaling molecules, and biomimetic, biodegradable scaffolds."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the University of California, "Bone tissue engineering has become increasingly dependent on the merging of innovations from each of these fields, as they continue to evolve independently. This foreword will highlight some of the most recent advances in bone tissue engineering and regeneration, emphasizing the interconnected fields of stem cell biology, cell signaling biology, and biomaterial research. These include, for example, novel methods for mesenchymal stem cell purification, new methods of Wnt signaling pathway manipulation, and cutting edge computer assisted nanoscale design of bone scaffold materials."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "In the following special issue, we sought to incorporate these diverse areas of emphasis in order to reflect current trends in the field."
