While these studies suggested that stem cells were gone wild key to liver cancer development, no one could find such cancer stem cells – stem cells or not – in the liver tissue in order to test the theory.

Good potential for new treatments to finding – and Bad – liver stem cellsthen had Georgetown surgeon Lynt Johnson, an idea for Mishra and her research team. He suggested for for stem cells in liver tissue that had newly patients patients with a defective organ. Stem cells in this tissue would be particularly active, Johnson reasoned, because they would be busy new liver cells. .Mark Bates winning essay of a new kind on a new type of ‘optically be switched ‘fluorescent molecule is, and how these molecules have been used high resolution imaging of biological processes.
