USC Stem Cell scientist and former professional volleyball player Leonardo Morsut has built a synthetic cellular communication system known as “synNotch.” This system could enable scientists to direct the behavior of cells in useful ways—ranging from killing cancer to regenerating the body after injury.
Just as there are times when two heads are better than one, there are times when two labs are better than one. Thanks to the new Doerr Stem Cell Challenge Grants, teams of postdoctoral researchers from different USC labs have received up to $10,000 in funding to pursue interdisciplinary one-year projects. Two teams used the …

Two new studies from Valter Longo indicate that a brief fasting- mimicking diet done periodically reduces disease risk factors and may reverse diseases like diabetes by promoting regeneration.
Meet four junior faculty members from USC Stem Cell. Dr. Megan McCain is engineering stem cell-derived “organ on a chip” models of human heart disease. Dr. Min Yu is developing approaches to target circulating tumor cells to halt the spread of breast cancer. Dr. Joseph T. Rodgers is uncovering signaling networks that coordinate muscle stem …
What are stem cells, and why are they so important? Stem cells are the builders and the repairmen of the world’s most complex construction project: the creation of a human body! Thanks to the seven million California voters who voted Yes on Proposition 71, California’s $3 billion stem cell initiative, California’s scientists are already making …
