Quotes

"Though he loved pathology, he missed interacting with patients and thus began his career with addicts, whom he treated with the utmost respect, often giving them a dollar or two to get some lunch" said his daughter Laura Apgar
"Our results suggest that these newborns may not be mounting adequate hormonal response to daily stressors" said the lead researcher Laura Stroud
"We found that multiple combinations of cell populations allowed subsequent formation of engineered tissue. Different progenitor cells can find the right 'partner' cell in order to grow into specific esophageal cell types - such as epithelium, muscle or nerve cells - and without the need for exogenous growth factors. This means that successful tissue engineering of the esophagus is simpler than we previously thought" said Grikscheit
...ssorprofessor of pathology, Pitt School of Medicine, and director of the Cancer Stem Cell Center at the McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine. "To do that, cells in the deeper layers of the esophagus divide about twice a week to produce daughter cells that become the specialized cells of the lining. Until now, we haven't been able to determine whether all the cells in the deeper layers are the same or if there is a subpopulation of stem cells there." The re team grew pieces or "organoids" of esophageal tissue from mouse samples, and then conducted experiments to identify and track the different cells...
