Stem Cells @20 UW-Madison

In 1998, UW–Madison developmental biologist James Thomson introduced the world to the first laboratory-derived human embryonic stem cells. His lab’s accomplishment underpins the new field of regenerative medicine, and the all-purpose cells are used worldwide to test drugs, develop treatments for diseases and further our understanding of basic human biology. Twenty years later, UW–Madison remains at the forefront, an internationally recognized leader in stem cell research.

  • Engineers drawn to stem cells’ abundance, humanity

    There was a time when Eric Shusta’s lab was more reliant on the local butcher shop than you might expect. To learn more about the blood-brain barrier — the cellular wall between the open ocean of the bloodstream and the protected confines of the brain — and how to trick the body into letting foreign molecules (like drugs for neurological disease) through the barrier’s gates, Shusta needed brains.
