Mesenchymal stem cells are a type of adult stem cell which can be isolated from one’s own tissues such as the endometrium or uterine lining, menstrual blood, placenta, bone marrow and fat. They have the potential to be used for treating a wide range of diseases, but because they are rare it is necessary to grow them in the laboratory to generate the large number of cells required. In my PhD, I identified a drug that keeps these cells fit and healthy during culturing. Therefore, the cells remain potent and will do their job more effectively when given to patients.
