BREAKING: Prop 71 Leader Bob Klein Proposes $100B Biomed Program
Bob Klein, the main backer of California's 2004 stem cell initiative, Proposition 71, has proposed a $100 billion international bond program in life sciences, to speed up research and clinical testing of disease therapies. The program would be focused on stem cells and genomics.
At Least for Stem Cells, the "Fountain of Youth" May Only be a Nice Pillow & Good Night's Rest Away
Environmental stress is a major factor in driving DNA damage in adult hematopoietic stem cells, researchers have found, concluding that a good night's sleep keeps your stem cells "young."

Baylor College of Medicine Receives an Additional $11 Million in State Cancer Funding
2014 World Stem Cell Summit Co-Organizer Baylor College of Medicine in Houston received an additional $11.3m in cancer funding with a focus on pediatric and adolescent cancers using stem cells and regenerative medicine. “These awards are well deserved by the researchers as they are funding potentially ground breaking research that could be paradigm changing,” said Dr. Kent Osborne, director of the Duncan Cancer Center at Baylor.
3-D Engineered Bone Marrow Makes Functioning Platelets
Researchers at Tufts University School of Engineering and the University of Pavia have reported development of the first three-dimensional tissue system that reproduces the complex structure and physiology of human bone marrow that successfully generates functional human platelets.

Stem Cells from Teeth May Restore Sight to the Blind
Scientists at the University of Pittsburgh working with mice showed how stem cells harvested from teeth and extracted during routine dental procedures can potentially be used to restore sight in those suffering from corneal blindness. (Ed. Note: The findings are published online in the official journal of The Regenerative Medicine Foundation, STEM CELLS Translational Medicine)
CIRM Awards Five Grants to Stanford Stem Cell Researchers
Five Stanford researchers were awarded grants of between $1 million and $2 million courtesy of CIRM. The awards were given through the agency’s “tools and technology” grant program, which encourages researchers to develop new methods and techniques to overcome stumbling blocks in the field.

NIH-Supported Researchers Map Epigenome of More than 100 Tissue and Cell Types
Much like mapping the human genome laid the foundations for understanding the genetic basis of human health, new maps of the human epigenome may further unravel the complex links between DNA and disease.
