    perform specialized functions such as a heart muscle cell pumping blood through the body, or a red blood cell carrying oxygen through the bloodstream. However, stem cells to have the potential to form specialized stem cells in a process called differentiation, that is, when a stem cell goes through stages of change that allow it to perform specific functions. Scientist are still attempting to understand why only certain types of stem cells are able to proliferate without differentiating for…

    reason iPSC’s are preferentially used is due to the capability of these cell to have unlimited regeneration. The ability to induce pluripotency in somatic cells was discovered by the researcher Shinya Yamanaka and his colleagues. After the differentiation of an embryonic stem cell into a mature somatic cell, the somatic cell regulates its gene expression by transcriptionally silencing the majority of the genes within its genome. Even though pluripotency genes are present inside of…

    Keywords: CoQ10, CoQ10 Benefits, benefits of CoQ10, CoQ10 Dosage CoQ10 Facts: CoQ10 Benefits, Dosage & More If you asked me for the most powerful nutrient you can take for heart health, hands down the answer is Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). In fact, I’ve long said that if CoQ10 was a medication pharmaceutical companies would be racing each other to get the patent—it’s literally that powerful for preventing and treating heart disease. Yet, many cardiologists still don’t know what CoQ10 is or why it’s so…

    Gene therapy is a growing medical technology specifically relating to the insertion of genes into human cells and tissue to treat diseases, mainly focusing on hereditary diseases in which mutant genes are replaced with ones of which are functional and healthy. Within gene therapy there are two other main occurring factors such as somatic gene therapy and germ-line gene therapy also taking into consideration the two techniques that follow gene therapy; gene augmentation therapy and gene…

    first four days, embryonic stem cells become pluripotent, which means they can specialize into any sort of tissue cell but cannot give rise to a whole organism. Researchers typically use pluripotent embryonic stem cells. Due to the near limitless differentiation that embryonic stem cells are capable of, scientists, researchers, and medical professionals are studying the potential for cell-based regenerative therapies, tissue transplants, and the replacement of aged or diseased cells. However,…

    In the story Becoming Dr. Q we are taken through vivid memories of triumph and despair. There is much to be seen in these stories shared by Dr. Q, most speak on cases that boggle the world of medicine as a whole while others are common cases that are yet to be uncured by science. It is in those respects that I feel a recurring theme of this life story is that of the personal effect that every patient has had on Dr. Q. He often speaks about the impact that these lives have had on him both in a…

    Medical advances have been improving rapidly in the past century. Scientists are now discovering new ways to treat diseases that were previously, deemed incurable. Shortages in donors has always been a problem in the hospital world and even when there is a donor, it doesn’t necessarily mean the recipients body will accept the donation. Stem cells have been studied for decades, however, recently they are coming out with new ways to apply these stem cells into curing genetic diseases by correcting…

    First, the reason we should publicly fund the embryonic research is because we would be able to have a regulated research to prevent the worst. In a Vanderbilt article “Funding the Future: Embryonic Stem Cell Research” it says “the opportunity to clearly define regulations for ethical research”(Stan/2017/Vanderbilt/“Funding the Future: Embryonic Stem Cell Research”). This quote proves that the research can lead to health benefits. In an NPR article “Stem Cell Research: An NPR Special Report” it…

    Differentiation of children’s learning is an essential tool in an English Primary School setting (DCSF, 2008). Children learn at different rates (Brandt, 1998; Tomlinson, 2001) and thus it stands to reason that the learning that is carried out in a classroom is differentiated to suit the varying needs of the learner. Contradictory to standards-based teaching, differentiation denotes to a student-centred pedagogical approach which aims at responding flexibly to individual students’ learning…

    Nuclear Chemistry: The Magnetic Resonance Imaging The evolution of medicine is quite interesting. It first started out with spirits, omens, and other mythical beliefs. Then, the discovery of science has allowed for more practical ways to examine and heal a body. First the simple tools came into play, then the advanced technology. As the years keep progressing, more and more discoveries are being made. One example of this is magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Nuclear chemistry has allowed for…
