Thymus Stem Cells Discovered

Published 2023-09-08

In a recent publication in the journal Cell Development, reserachers from the Francis Crick Institute in London have identified a unique stem cell population in the human thymus, called Polykeratin stem cells. This is the first discovery of stem cells in the thymus organ. These stem cells were able to differentiate into epithelial as well as muscle and neuroendocrine cells in vitro, pointing to a larger role of the thymus gland in human development.
