The concept of “stemness” refers to the capacity within a stem cell to create different kinds of cells. It promises to revolutionize medicine. Isolated in the petri dish, stem cells exhibit interesting behaviors that scientists are just beginning to understand. With thousands of cells to monitor, computer vision technology is helping researchers analyze great numbers of cells move, divide, and die. The system also helps to understand how to control cells, with the goal of making them differentiate. In this online radio edition of Future Lab, we talk with scientists Mei Chen, Phil Campbell, and Takeo Kanade who are studying stem cells with the aid of computer vision technology.
