ASCs resist chemotherapeutic

Congratulations to Olivia Beane on the publication of her article entitled "Adipose-derived stem cells retain their regenerative potential after methotrexate treatment" in Experimental Cell Research. The study, which investigated the effects of chemotherapeutics on non-stem cells vs. ASCs, highlights the potential for using ASCs in cell-based therapies for patients undergoing methotrexate treatment. A more detailed write-up on this study is available via Brown's News Page.

Congratulations to Dr. Eric Darling on receiving a prestigious National Science Foundation CAREER Award to advance his research and teaching. This 5-year grant will support work investigating the spatial variation in gene expression and mechanical properties of stem cells to learn more about how they turn into specific cell types. Additionally, the funding will support outreach efforts to introduce interdisciplinary concepts to teachers and students in the local public school district.
