A new study shows how stem cells — which can contribute to creating many parts of the body, not just one organ or body part — are able to postpone their own death in order to respond to an injury that needs their attention. The study was done in planarians, which are tiny worms used as model organisms to study regeneration because of their ability to recover from any injury using stem cells.
