The Creation

 
Ms Michelle H. Escobedo-cousin, Cancer Research UK London Research Institute

This is a stem cell, a pluripotent cell capable to self-renew and to create any type of cell.

This beautiful round stem cell is sitting there, interacting with stromal cells covering a 3D scaffold that resembles the bone marrow. It is waiting for the right stimulus, ready to proliferate and to differentiate, ready to create a new immune system.

This is the today and tomorrow of regenerative medicine.
