Featured Video : Transforming lives with 3D Printing - future of health

Robin Roberts of WebMD reports on cutting edge 3D printing that is reshaping care for patients with missing limbs by providing custom prosthesis that help them live a more fulfilling lives. According to the report, advancements in 3D printing, regenerative medicine, and bioprinting are poised to save thousands of people in the coming years. Dr. Anthony Atala of the Wake Forest Institute of Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM) and founder of the Regenerative Medicine Foundation is featured. The Huffington Post also interviewed Dr. Atala on how 3D printing could end deadly shortage of donor organs. Click here.

U-T San Diego: Lose the battle but win the war? U.S. Supreme Court declines review WARF stem cell patent challenge
A nine-year challenge to WARF’s human embryonic stem cell patents came to a final conclusion. The U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear the case based upon the challengers lack of standing. Journalist Bradley Fikes of the Union-Tribune provides a succinct summary of the battle and outcomes of the case.

Drug Discovery & Development: Hair cells from pluripotent stem cells
In a research area that may lead to big profits, a science team led by researchers at the Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute reported creating new hair cells from pluripotent stem cells. The research was reported in PLOS (Proceedings of the Library of Science) One.
Forbes: Graphene shows promise In eradication of cancer stem cells
Get to know graphene. Discovered in 2003, 100 times stronger than steel by weight, a better and more efficient conductor of heat and energy, and now, a possible new cancer-killer? Scientists at the University of Manchester, utilized graphene in a completely different way: to neutralize cancer stem cells (CSC) and not harm other cells. The research was published in Oncotarget.

GEN: Link found between inflammation, tissue regeneration, and wound repair
Researchers led by scientists at the University of California San Diego- School of Medicine have discovered new links between inflammation and regeneration, i.e., signaling pathways that are activated by the gp130 receptor protein. Utilizing a mouse model, the researchers believe their findings have important clinical implications for the treatment of IBD and colorectal cancer.
Nova Next: Mind over matter- an inflammatory theory of brain disease
A well written article of topical interest. “Though it may be going too far to call inflammation a grand unifying theory of chronic disease, the link between the two is a focus of labs around the world.”
Stem Cellar Blog: Three-year CIRM-funded study reveals safe methods for growing clinical-grade stem cells
Researchers from The Scripps Research Institute and UC San Diego spent nearly three years systematically testing out different recipes and found conditions that should be safest for stem cell-based therapies in people.

Editor’s note: 360 readers should bookmark and read the official blog of the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine. CIRM research dollars and the resulting breakthroughs are making lasting contributions to field. California leads the way.
