    Targeted genetic engineering of human pluripotent cells is a prerequisite for exploiting their full potential. Such genetic manipulations can be achieved using site-specific nucleases. Here we engineered transcription ...
  • Yang, Fan; Cho, Seung Woo; Son, Sun Mi; Bogatyrev, Said R.; Singh, Deepika; Green, Jordan; Mei, Ying; Park, Sohyun; Bhang, Suk Ho; Kim, Byung-Soo; Langer, Robert; Anderson, Daniel G. (National Academy of Sciences, 2010-02)
    Stem cells hold great potential as cell-based therapies to promote vascularization and tissue regeneration. However, the use of stem cells alone to promote angiogenesis remains limited because of insufficient expression ...
  • Lander, Eric S. (Nature Publishing Group, 2013-01)
    Neuroblastoma is a malignancy of the developing sympathetic nervous system that often presents with widespread metastatic disease, resulting in survival rates of less than 50%. To determine the spectrum of somatic mutation ...
  • Strauss, Bernard S.; Strauss, Jacob A. (United States National Academy of Sciences, 2009-09)
    Both biological and social scientists have recently commented on the supposed greater variability of males in IQ tests and in mathematical achievement (1). Missing from these discussions is any consideration of possible ...
