Researchers develop novel method for generating thyroid cells

February 19, 2017

Using genetically modified embryonic stem cells, researchers are exploring ways to more efficiently generate thyrocytes for use in studying thyroid disease, according to a press release from Boston University Medical Center.

Thyroid disorders affect approximately 10% of the US population, and this new technique is the first step for developing a way to use human stem cells that can model thyroid disease, according to the release.
