Stem Cell Biology

Stem cells are defined by the dual capacity to self-renew and to differentiate. These properties sustain homeostatic cell turnover in adult tissues and enable repair and regeneration throughout the lifetime of the organism.

They have the capacity to make any somatic cell type, including tissue stem cells.
