Breakthrough - How Stem Cells Work - a vimeo from Harvard School of Medicine

“Birth and Engraftment of Blood Stem Cells”

This video published by the Harvard School of Medicine is incredible!

It’s a zebrafish story that takes you from the birth of a blood stem cell, along its travel through the body, to its site of engraftment.

When a human patient receives a stem cell (bone marrow/MScs etc.) transplant, similar processes happen.  Leonard Zon, MD, and colleagues published their full findings in the January 15, 2015 issue of Cell.

Without question, it’s the BEST 3 minutes you’ll spend today
