Healing begins with a Single Cell.™
The beginning of human stem cell growth - a small human embryonic stem cell colony (highlighted in yellow) grows on a layer of "feeder cells" that provide critical support for its continued development. (Digital images have been enhanced through specialized microscopes and software)
Three dimensional structures form in the periphery of a human embryonic stem cell colony - with further growth, stem cell colonies can become organized in more complex structures.
The interface of a human embryonic stem cell colony and its underlying support cell layer - this image shows the obvious difference between the stem cells and the support "feeder cells" layer.
