  Europeans crack embryonic stem cells mystery

Photo of article Europeans are driving research and technology, and their latest achievement is in discovering that embryonic stem cell properties are impacted by the laboratory conditions used to grow them. In their groundbreaking study, a European team of researchers evaluated embryonic stem cells grown in a pure undifferentiated state. The use of next generation sequencing technology enabled them to analyse gene expression (i.e. transcriptome) and chromatin modifications (i.e. epigenome). The study, presented in the journal Cell, was supported in part by four EU-funded projects: HEROIC, PLURISYS, EUROSYSTEM and ATLAS. The results pinpoint key differences between pure stem cells and embryonic stem cells grown in laboratory settings.

  EU supports cell therapy project, fosters dialogue with patient groups

Photo of article The EU has given the green light to a new project that focuses on the most common and debilitating form of muscular dystrophy, known as Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). The project, called MYOAMP, has identified a gap in the current body of knowledge concerning stem cell therapies for DMD, and aims to pool existing studies into a single knowledge base that can be used as a synthesised resource in a final preparatory stage leading to clinical studies. MYOAMP is unique in that the project consortium is not only comprised of research institutions and SMEs, but includes patient organisations adding invaluable insight to the project.

  Young researchers choosing Europe for stem cell careers

Photo of article As the new year gets underway, young researchers in cutting-edge and politically contentious fields are forced to examine how their respective sectors have progressed over the past year and the direction they will take in the new one. Human stem cell research has arguably been one of the most debated scientific issues at national and European levels in recent years. As such, a recent Science article had a look at the state of affairs for stem cell research in Europe. The magazine took stock of human stem cell policy across the EU and examined its effects on young researchers making career choices in an equally nascent field. Several researchers point to such initiatives as Marie-Curie mobility grants and the flagship project EuroStemCell, funded by the EU's framework programme, as reasons why they have chosen to tie their careers to Europe's stem cell future.
