Stem cell therapy shows promise against age-related muscle loss

As the name implies, induced pluripotent stem cells can become any type of cell in our body, and scientists have evidence that when they prompt them to become muscle progenitor cells they can help restore the sometimes debilitating muscle loss that happens with age.

NASA grant enables scientist to explore ways to keep astronauts’ bones strong in space

The skeleton’s ability to adapt to mechanical loading — the forces put on bone by both gravity and muscle in response to movement — is critical to bone health, and circumstances like spaceflight or a spinal cord injury can interfere, says Dr. Meghan E. McGee-Lawrence, MCG biomedical engineer. With a new grant from NASA, she hopes to better understand how lack of gravity and other causes of disuse affect the usual dynamics of the skeleton, and find ways to restore a healthy dynamic when usual options like increased physical activity and weight lifting are not viable.
