EMCBB author wins Nobel Prize for Medicine / Physiology
Robert Meyers and the team at the Encyclopedia of Molecular cell Biology and Molecular Medicine would like to congratulate Professor Shinya Yamanaka on winning the 2012 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine.

Professor Yamanaka's article, Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells is available online here and will also be available in the forthcoming book, Stem Cells, to be published in the spring. To reserve your copy, click here.

Professor Yamanaka, together with Professor Sir John Gurdon, were awarded the Prize in recognition of their discoveries that adult cells could be preprogrammed to revert to a pluripotent state. For more information on the Prize, click here.

Spotlight on...

Cancer Stem Cells

FREE Special Collection:

Stem Cells and Cancer

A recent discovery by a team at the University of Oxford in the UK brings us closer to confirming the existence of cancer stem cells and could lay the foundation of better treatments that would attack the disease at its root.

EMCBMM has a number of articles, currently FREE on cancer stem cells, providing much needed background information to this new discovery:

Cancer Stem Cells
Mei Zhang and Jeffrey Rosen, University of Pittsburgh, USA

The Stem Cell Niche and Its Role in Self-Renewal, Aging, and Malignancy
Peter Breslin, Andrew Volk and Jiwang Zhang, Loyola University Medical Center, USA

Prostate Tissue Stem Cells and Prostate Cancer Progression
Collene Jeter and Dean Tang, University of Texas, USA

Stem Cells and Colon Cancer
Simone Di Franco, Antonia Benfante, Flora Iovino, Sebastiano Bonventre, Francesco Dieli, Giorgio Stassi and Matilde Todaro, University of Palermo and IRCCS Fondazione Salvatore Maugeri, Italy

Therapeutics Against Cancer Stem Cells: Targeting the Root of Cancer
Kristen Smith and Catriona Jamieson, University of California San Diego and Eclipse Therapeutics
