Cord blood stem cells can become lung cells

Another stem cell breakthrough using non-controversial kinds of stem cells, this time from researchers at the University of Minnesota, which probably won't be covered by American newspapers.
"In the future, we may be able to examine cord blood from babies who have lung diseases, such as cystic fibrosis, to do more research to understand how these diseases evolve as well as to develop better medical treatments," said David McKenna, M.D., assistant professor of lab medicine and pathology and medical director of the Clinical Cell Therapy Lab at the University of Minnesota Medical Center, Fairview.
