Artificial thymus developed at UCLA can produce cancer-fighting T cells from blood stem cells. MyScience and Public Now on April 3 and International Business Times and MedicalXpress on April 4 reported on how UCLA researchers created an artificial thymus that can produce human T cells, the white blood cells that fight against disease-causing intruders in the body. The research was led by Gay Crooks, a professor of pathology and laboratory medicine and of pediatrics and co-director of the Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research at UCLA.
