Early human embryos may be naturally prone to making mistakes in chromosome allocation to new cells, according to a report by Bedford Stem Cell Research Foundation scientists. Their new findings indicate rapid increases in total genetic information may be more important to embryo survival than accurate... - April 07, 2010
101 healthy babies have been born from SPAR, the Special Program of Assisted Reproduction, which allows HIV positive men to safely father children. Dr. Kiessling’s recent work is bridging the gap between assisted reproduction and stem cell science. - November 09, 2009

Cell Multiplication Controlled by a Surprising set of Genes. Stem cell researcher Dr. Ann Kiessling has discovered that early human embryo cells express CLOCK, and other circadian genes, that other human cells growing in laboratories did not. This was a surprise. According to Professor Jose Cibelli of Michigan State University, "This is a seminal paper. I am sure we will be referring back to it 10, 20 years from now." - March 30, 2009
