Researchers have identified a factor present in the skin of baby mice that controls the formation of hair follicles during their early development. The factor is turned off in adult mice, but when it is turned back on, it allows them to regenerate their skin following injury without scarring, just like baby mice do. SkinSkin,...

A group of researchers has succeeded in directly reprogramming fibroblast cells into photoreceptors and transplanting them into mice, which resulted in partial restoration of vision [1]. This achievement can potentially lead to the development of cheap and effective treatments for retinopathies such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD), the leading cause of vision loss in older...
