A magnified section of mouse bone marrow that has received a xenograft of human mesenchymal stem cells. Mesenchymal stem cells are found in the body’s connective tissue. (Credit: Bianca Nowlan / ASSCR)
Two embryoid bodies—aggregates of pluripotent cells or cells which can turn into multiple cell types—derived from human embryonic stem cells, bleeding in a dish. (Credit: Ana Rita Leitoguinho / ASSCR)
Studying multiple biomarkers—which indicate whether particular biological processes are occurring—in the brain’s dentate gyrus, a region of the hippocampus. Such studies help us evaluate the clinical potential of stem cell therapies. (Credit: An Truong/ASSCR)
This fluorescent ball of cells is a neurosphere, or cluster of neural stem cells. It has been formed from two genetically distinct populations of mouse neural stem cells, and has the potential to turn into other neural cells. (Credit: Claire Homan / ASSCR)
When mesenchymal stem cells are induced to form new bone cells, some cells will undergo apoptosis or programmed cell death and fragment. (Credit: Eman Othman Mossad/ASSCR)
Decellularised extracellular matrix proteins are highlighted by fluorescent labels. The proteins are produced by human bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells. (Credit: Gina Kusuma / ASSCR)
A six-week-old neuronal network, derived from human embryonic stem cells, shows the intricacy of nodes branching and connecting to other nodes. It’s a veritable spider’s web of information pathways. (Credit: Jarmon Lees / ASSCR)

Fat microtissues produced from human mesenchymal stem cells in bone marrow. With their perfect symmetry and abundance of glorious fat droplets, they are fascinating to look at! (Credit: Mike Doran / ASSCR)
