Stem cell breakthrough

<P>Medical Research News 6/14/2006</P> <P>Researchers at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) and the University of Calgary have found that stem cells derived from adult skin can create neural cell types that can be transplanted into and function in mouse models of disease. <BR>This research is reported in the June 14, 2006 issue of The Journal of Neuroscience. </P> <P>SickKids researchers previously discovered what type of cells can be made from these stem cells (called skin-derived precursors, or SKPs) based on the role played by…</P>
