Page Early stage of mitosis
To the right is a cell in the early stages of mitosis, or cell division
Page Building spare parts
Dr. Ian Rogers and his team are building bioartificial kidneys for transplantation.
Page HeLa Cell Undergoing Mitosis
This image was taken by the super-resolution microscope (OMX), which offers much greater resolution and detail compared to other forms of light microscopy. The cell shown here is in the process of division. The chromosomes, stained blue, are aligned at the metaphase plate with the attached microtubules, in green.

Page The darker side of regenerative medicine: working toward safer stem cell therapies
Stem cells have been widely touted as a source of great hope for their use in medicine, such as in the development of new drugs to prevent and treat illnesses like Parkinson’s disease, wound healing and spinal cord injury. But techniques for generating these highly malleable cells have also created concerns around safety in stem cell therapies.

Page Not your typical March Break: the life of an intern at the LTRI
For March Break this year, some students took advantage of the time off from school to travel with families, hang out with friends, or to catch up on some much needed sleep. However, a unique group of students from local Toronto high schools did something a little different – they pursued their passion for science as interns at the Lunenfeld-Tanenbaum Research Institute for March Break.
