Stem Cell Metabolism

Originally aired on June 29, 2018


Recent work has emphasized the importance of metabolic states and energy balance in maintaining stem cell function. Studies at the interface of stem cell biology and metabolism have investigated how metabolic flux is linked to changes in cell fate and dysfunction and have highlighted potential strategies to restore or manipulate stem cell metabolism for therapeutic gains in aging and disease.

In this Cell Press webinar, Alessandro Prigione (MDC), Heather Christofk (UCLA), and Michael Teitell (UCLA) will discuss their work studying metabolic regulation of pluripotency and reprogramming, and provide insights into how cellular metabolism controls self-renewal, differentiation, and survival of human pluripotent stem cells.
