Nextbigfuture has been eagerly awaiting the publication of the research paper on the scientific results of the combination gene therapy experiments by George Church and the team at Rejuvenate Bio. There was a video over one year ago where George …

gene therapyStem Cell Therapies are Closer to Not Needing Anti-Rejection Drugs

Universal stem cells that would not need anti-rejection drugs would be transformative for regenerative medicine. New research by AgeX and Juvenescence brings us much closer to Universal stem cells. They are getting success modifying the immune signaling molecule that protects …

futureHigh Resolution Imaging Screens Thousands of Genes in a Few Days

Researchers at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard and MIT have developed a new method that combines large-scale pooled genetic screens with image-based analysis of cellular behavior. The approach, called optical pooled screens, allows researchers to examine how genes …
