Break a bone, it will heal. Fry a retinal cell? It’s gone forever. That’s why your mom told you never to stare at the sun.

Say you’re sick. You head to your doctor and discuss personal details about your body. The doc thoughtfully checks your symptoms, maybe administers a test or two, and then delivers a diagnosis. 

A $10 million investment from the Washington Research Foundation will enable UW Medicine scientists to begin clinical trials of a treatment that has the potential to restore heart tissue in people who have suffered heart attacks. 

In a major advance, researchers at the University of Washington have successfully restored damaged heart muscle of monkeys using heart cells created from human embryonic stem cells.

Two proteins that control how cells break down glucose play a key role in forming human stem cells, University of Washington researchers have found.

University of Washington researchers have created a line of human embryonic stem cells with the ability to develop into a far broader range of tissues than most existing cell lines.
