Browse stem cell biology pathways

Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that can both differentiate into any cell type and can continue to divide indefinitely—otherwise known as self-renewal. There are two broad types of stem cells, embryonic stem cells and adult stem cells, and both are now useful for a wide range of research, engineering, and disease modeling capacities. A number of pathways fall under this area, including the BMP and FGF pathways.
