Teeth Stem Cells

Stem cells from teeth can make neuron-like cells and networks
May 6, 2014

mouse-derived dental pulp stem cell University of Adelaide researchers have discovered that stem cells taken from teeth can grow to form complex networks of neuron-like cells, suggesting a possible therapy for stroke. Although these cells haven’t developed into fully fledged neurons, researchers believe it’s just a matter of time and the right conditions for it to happen. “Stem cells from … more…
