CHOC’s new stem cell production facility, slated to open late this summer, will allow CHOC researchers to produce patient-specific cells for immune-matching therapies that could positively impact fatal neurological diseases in children – all at a fraction of the cost of building a larger, more complex laboratory. Within the state-the-art softwall clean room, CHOC researchers […]
Researchers are studying autism by turning skin cells into brain cells through genetic manipulation, says CHOC’s Philip Schwartz, Ph.D.

These findings may help explain why premature infants with intestinal pathology experience more complications and higher mortality rates. CHOC Infectious Diseases Medical Director Antonio Arrieta, M.D., and his team have also […]
