Bergen Stem Cell Consortium meeting 2019 took place in Bergen where researchers not only from Norway but also from several European countries came together to discuss about recent development of research and clinical application in stem cell biology. Ph.D. candidate, Shuntaro Yamada, presented his ongoing work with the title of “Plasma surface activation of polymeric biomaterials improved seeding... Read more
Tooth morphogenesis is not driven by proliferation but spatiotemporal change in cell shape regulated by actomyosin. Ph. D candidate Shuntaro Yamada’s previous work “Molar Bud-to-Cap Transition Is Proliferation Independent” conducted at King’s College London, UK, was published on The Journal of Dental Research, which is a peer-reviewed and top-cited journal in dentistry. This work revealed the... Read more
