    Blutstammzellen unter dem Mikroskop

    Umbilical cord blood has a great potential to heal many diseases. A new research cooperation examines how to grow as many stem cells as possible that are responsible for this effect. Initiator and spokesman of this cooperation is the Würzburg stem cell researcher Albrecht Müller. The Federal Government is funding the project with 1.2 million Euros.
