Samuel Stupp

  1. Dec 18, 2007 #1
    Did Samuel Stupp (Northwestern University) inject/use stem cells when he got the paralyzed mice to walk again or did he just use molecules with he capacity to self assemble into nanofibres once injected into the body? (to get the stem cells to help with the healing, or to do whatever it was that happened)

    Do you have a link or something so we can see what research you're talking about?
    His home page does not have anything that I able to see.

    if you google things like "Samuel Stupp, paralyzed mice, heals mice etc' you'll get a lot of results with info on them, I think

    like this http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/story?id=3102679&page=1

    Quote from that link:
    "All it took was a simple injection of a liquid containing tiny molecular structures developed by Stupp and his colleagues at Northwestern University."

    so, they didn't use anything other than that like injecting stem cells when injecting the mice or did they?

    Why is there an envelope beside the thread?
