Over the past two decades, scientists have been gradually deciphering the processes by which unspecialized stem cells become the many specialized cell types in the body. Stem cells can regenerate \ themselves or produce specialized cell types. This property makes stem cells appealing for scientists seeking to create medical treatments that replace lost or damaged cells.

What are Stem cells? Ultimately, every cell in the human body can be traced back to a fertilized egg that came into existence from the union of egg and sperm. But the body is made up of over 200 diff...

At approximately 98,000 light-years from Earth, Reticulum 2 is one of the nearest dwarf galaxies yet detected. Using publicly available data from NASA's #Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, CMU's Geringer-Sameth and Matthew Walker and Brown's Savvas Koushiappas have shown gamma rays coming from the direction of the galaxy in excess of what would be expected from normal background.

Complete peripheral corneal conjunctivalization with a clear central corneal epithelium. The surface of the eye was stained with fluorescein. Delayed staining (in green) highlights the conjunctival epithelium, which can be seen encroaching onto the peripheral corneal surface around the whole circumference of the cornea. Despite this, the central corneal epithelium remained normal.
