Biomedical researchers are experimenting with stem cells from a variety of species for conservation purposes and to study diseases and potential therapies. Getting stem cells to grow is tricky, and understanding how to grow stem cells from one organism could reveal ways to ensure stem cell therapies for humans are safe, says Kyoko Miura, who was among the first to generate induced pluripotent stem cells from naked mole rats to study therapies for spinal cord injuries.
