Stem Cell Derived Thyroid Tissue Rescues Hormone Levels in Mice

Originally, researchers led by Sabine Costagliola, PhD, the Free University of Brussels, intended to study thyroid physiology by deriving thyroid cells from stem cells; but, surprisingly, the generated thyroid tissue spontaneously formed three-dimensional follicle-like structures in vitro. The scientists grafted this tissue into thyroid-less mice, which resulted in rescued hormone levels. This study is published in Nature.
