One of my roles as director of the Gladstone Institute of Cardiovascular Disease
and president of the Gladstone Institutes was to encourage young scientists like Dr.
Deepak Srivastava, director of the Gladstone Institute of Cardiovascular Disease
at UC San Francisco, who provided some of the mouse vascular tissues used by the researchers.
Researchers led by Deepak Srivastava, director of the Gladstone Institute of Cardiovascular Disease
in San Francisco, CA, said they used a trial-and-error process to identify three genes able to turn fibroblasts into heart muscle.
Peidong Yang of the University of California, Berkeley and Bruce Conklin of the Gladstone Institute of Cardiovascular Disease
in San Francisco have succeeded in growing mouse and human stem cells that are pierced by silicon nanowires--conducting structures that could give the cells an electrical nudge to spur their development.

London, July 6 (ANI): Taking a big leap towards finding a treatment of vascular diseases, a team led by an Indian-origin scientist at the Gladstone Institute of Cardiovascular Disease
(GICD) has discovered a key switch that makes stem cells turn into the type of muscle cells that reside in the wall of blood vessels.
