Among other things, the story, which appeared in the newspaper’s Societat i Ciència section, highlights in particular the way stem cells can differentiate into tissues according to the substrate on which they are placed.

This research forms part of the European project Cellprom, which works with adult stem cells to achieve a generation of tissues and possible therapeutic applications. Prof. Samitier participates with his group in the project, along with other groups at IBEC and the University of Barcelona.
