  4. Defining Therapeutic Potential of Clonal Stem Cell Populations using Targeted Nan

    SBC: OCATA THERAPEUTICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Project Summary Embryonic stem cells offer considerable potential for cell replacement therapy where cells have been lost to injury or disease because of their capacity for continual self renewal and ability to differentiate into virtually any cell type or tissue. Currently, however the process by which human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) differentiate into various mature functional cell types is ...
