Stem Cell Awareness Day

October 3, 2012 is Stem Cell Awareness Day. As part of NYSTEM's continued efforts to showcase the richness of stem cell science in New York State, we are once again soliciting from investigators stem cell images that are visually compelling and effectively convey scientific content. The top images were selected for visual beauty and scientific significance. They are here as a slide show, and are incorporated into a 2013 calendar available for downloading (right).

Cells were immunostained using cardiac markers, anti-α-Actinin (green) and MLC-2v (red), and were counterstained using DAPI to label nuclei (blue)....

A human CD44+ glial progenitor cell was allowed to mature for several weeks in culture, where it gave rise to an astrocyte (glial fibrillary acidic...

Using a handful of small molecules, nociceptors capable of detecting pain and noxious stimulus can be derived in high efficiency from human...

Cultured adult human donor spinal cord cells divide and generate new neurons and glial cells in culture. Sox2, a neural progenitor marker, was...

Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) from autistic patients differentiated into forebrain neural cells. The immunofluorescence signal is TuJ1 (red...

The choroid plexus is responsible for secretion of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) that bathes the central nervous system. The CSF is rich in growth...

Human macrophages, the functional arm of the immune system, that were derived from hematopoietic stem cells in the bone marrow, and activated in...

This montage image depicts mouse hair follicles as they transition from quiescent (the most left) to regenerative (the most right) stages. The dermal...

Pancreatic islet sinusoidal endothelial cells (green fluorescent tubes, VEGFR2) establish a network of microvascular niches that are in contact with...

A BAC transgenic DLL1::GFP hESC line was differentiated toward the dopaminergic neuronal lineage at Day 17 of differentiation.

When bFGF is withdrawn and iPSCs are allowed to spontaneously differentiate in vitro, they generate cells from the three germ layers. Here...

Dorsal-lateral corner of SVZ (image on left) and dentate gyrus of hippocampus (image on right) of P12 mouse brain. GFAP (green) labels neural stem...

Mouse prostate stem cells have the capacity to form spheres in vitro containing basal epithelial cells (cytokeratin 5 - green) and luminal epithelial...
