Improved methods for generating blood vessel and heart cells from hPSCs
Dr Nathan Palpant and Clayton Friedman from UQ CCVBs Stem Cells and Cardiovascular Development Laboratory and their collaborators from the University of Washington School of Medicine in the USA, have developed an efficient protocol to differentiate human pluripotent stem cells into heart muscle cells (cardiomyocytes) and blood vessel cells (endothelium).
The method has been published in Nature Protocols (Vol 12 No 1, 2017).
