Millions for Danish stem cell research

A substantial grant from the Lundbeck Foundation sees a Cambridge University-researcher travelling to Copenhagen to find out how stem cells react in a living organism and how they are able to renew our organs.

A Danish team of scientists is going to generate new knowledge about the behaviors of stem cells within living organisms and their ability to renew our organs. The research will be based on genetically engineered mice, the stem cells of whom the scientists are able to make fluorescent through a special diet.

“That way we are able to monitor the life of each individual stem cell in the different organs of the mice. Because, when it splits, it will become the source of two new cells that glow with the same color. And then we can simply count how many new cells each individual stem cell is the source of on a normal day in the life of a mouse,” says Kim Jensen in a press release from the Lundbeck Foundation
