Using Light to Optically Regulate Cell Fate for Regenerative Medicine

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
MILAN, Italy, Oct. 3, 2019 — Researchers at Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT) have shown that optical modulation can be exploited to directly control the fate of a progenitor cell population to facilitate the formation of new blood vessels. The researchers combined the use of photosensitive, biocompatible polymers with visible light excitation to gain optical control of cell fate. The team focused on endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) and, in particular, on endothelial colony-forming cells (ECFCs). ECFCs were mobilized from a bone marrow and vascular stem cell niche to reconstruct the vascular network...Read full article
