Breakthrough in stem cell research

For the first time, researchers at UCF have used adult stem cells to grow neuromuscular junctions, which are the main key connectors that allow muscle movement by the brain between human muscle and spinal cells. These grown cells can provide an easier means of testing for treatments and cures for many degenerative diseases in the future.

Our knowledge on stem cells, which are special cells within the body that hold regenerative abilities and have the capability of replacing cells damaged by disease, and the research involving them, continue to grow and create new discoveries.
