Indiana University scientists' research success puts Indiana in new stem cell business
...ng and comparing cells from adult blood and infant umbilical
cords, the IU team was able to isolate the parents -- the progenitors -- of the cells and explain how they differ from related cells. The progenitor cells the researchers identified are adult type stem cells, but they proliferate much like embryonic ...
