Dr. zur Nieden Edits New Book on Stem Cells.
Dr. Nicole zur
Nieden, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Cell Biology and Neuroscience at UCR, is the editor of a newly published book entitled
"Embryonic Stem Cell Therapy for Osteo-Degenerative Diseases". This book, published by Humana Press, contains 21 chapters dealing with a
broad spectrum of methods used in embryonic stem cell culture, particularly as it relates to development of bone. Chapters in this volume will be
of interest to any lab working with osteogenesis and to labs that culture stem cells for other purposes. Topics deal with methods to culture and
differentiate both mouse and human embryonic stem cells and are written in a manner that will make them a valuable resource for anyone entering
the field of embryonic stem cell culture. The protocols given in this volume are especially valuable in pointing out pitfalls and trouble shooting
tips that may be required for successful implementation of each method.
Dr. zur Nieden has
herself has contributed four chapters to this volume based on methods developed and used in her lab. Other members of the Department of Cell Biology
& Neuroscience at UCR who have contributed chapters include Drs. Sabrina Lin, Prue Talbot, and Andre Obenaus.
