Implications for Wilm's Tumor

An interesting article in Stem Cell Research by Lusis et al this week discusses the embryonic and fetal stem cells that become the kidney, and how to culture and study this type of cell.  This report has some rather important implications for Wilm's Tumor, a embryonic form of kidney tumor in children.  For additional detail, follow the link to the original article or see our Commentary.  
We are thankful to the Scott Carter Foundation for their support through a Scott Carter fellowship to Jinu Abraham, lead author of this editorial.
