Bone marrow fusion with nerve cells may repair damage, Stanford researchers say

...esearchers previously considered fusion to be less medically important than the idea that bone marrow cells may be able to change fates entirely. Blau disagrees with that assessment. "Fusion might be a sophisticated mechanism for rescuing complex damaged cells," she said. Blau and senior research scientist Jam...
