Chien Ho Develops Bio-Mimicry Method for Preparing and Labeling Stem Cells

Researchers led by Carnegie Mellon University Professor of Biological Sciences Chien Ho have developed a new method for preparing mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) that not only leads to the production of more native stem cells, but also labels them with a FDA approved iron-oxide nanoparticle (Ferumoxytol). The technology could allow researchers to track the cells in vivousing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) during preclinical and clinical trials.
