Until now, little was known about how intestinal stem cells (iSCs) behave in the human gut; previous work has focused on mouse models and we have not been able to be sure of how this translates to humans.

A new study by Dr Trevor Graham in our Centre for Tumour Biology is the first to reveal how human iSCs divide and maintain crypt structures in the colon...
