Biomimetic method produces large numbers of MRI-trackable mesenchymal stem cells.


Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are among the major stem cells used for cell therapy and regenerative medicine. In-vivo cell-tracking by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is crucial for regenerative medicine, allowing verification that the transplanted cells reach the targeted sites.  However, the results from trials using stem cells have proved problematic due to varying results and inadequate tracking systems.  Now, researchers
