UCLA School of Dentistry professor and leading cancer scientist Dr. Cun-Yu Wang and his research team have made a significant breakthrough in determining how to control thedifferentiation of stem cells into bone cells. The team was able to chemically manipulate certain gene-activating enzymes during the process of differentiation that ultimately influenced what type of cell they became.
“Through our recent discoveries on the lineage decisions of human bone marrow stem cells, we may be more effective in utilizing these stem cells for regenerative medicine for bone diseases such as osteoporosis, as well as for bone reconstruction,” Wang said.
This research holds great promise as understanding the mechanism of differentiation is critical to advancing the utility and applicability of regenerative medicine and potential therapies.
