K.Kretzschmar 1 (red & green)

Adult mouse tail epidermal whole-mount labelled with antibodies to keratin 14 (red) and the androgen receptor (green). Published as cover of the book Skin and its diseases: a subject from the Cold Spring Harbor perspectives in medicine / edited by Anthony E. Oro, Stanford University School of Medicine and Fiona M. Watt, Kings College London. Image kindly provided by Kai Kretzschmar and Fiona M. Watt

K.Kretzschmar 2 (umbrella's!)

Genetics lineage tracing of BLIMP1-expressing cells and their progeny (labelled with green fluorescent protein, GFP) in a whole-mount preparation of adult mouse tail epidermis. Differentiated sebocytes are labelled in red and polymerized actin is labelled in blue. The image shows GFP-positive cells in the hair follicle bulge but not in the sebaceous gland. Published as the cover of the October 2014 issue of Stem Cell Reports, an ISSCR/Cell Press journal Image kindly provided by Kai Kretzschmar and Fiona M. Watt

P. Berg - red explosion!

Pluripotent stem cells allow capturing the genetic background in which a disease such as Parkinson's disease (PD) occurs. Induced pluripotent stem cells from a PD patient were turned into neuron progenitor cells that over more than 100 days in culture produce millions of densely connected nerve cells with cell bodies (in blue) and long processes called dendrites and axons (in green and red).

Establishing the Molecular Blueprint of Early Embryo Development

Feb 20, 2019

A pioneering group of biologists, physicists and mathematical modellers in Cambridge have studied the genetic activity of over 100,000 embryonic cells to establish the molecular blueprint of mouse early embryo development.

Stem Cell Research Hits the Road

Feb 04, 2019

Two PhD students from the Wellcome – MRC Cambridge Stem Cell Institute are embarking on a 6000km journey in a customised Renault 4L to support children and schools in Morocco, and to raise awareness of stem cell research at a global scale.

From eye drops to potential leukaemia treatment

Dec 19, 2018

An active ingredient in eye drops that were being developed for the treatment of a form of eye disease has shown promise for treating an aggressive form of blood cancer.
