Regenerative Medicine Research

Regenerative medicine is the creation of functional tissues to replace damaged or defective organs or other tissues.

Through regenerative medicine, physicians hope to help damaged tissues heal themselves.

Regenerative medicine also allows doctors to grow tissues in a laboratory and implant them into the patient's body. This branch of medicine is associated with organ transplantation.

Our specialized pathologist researchers study new ways to help the body heal itself, with a particular emphasis on the liver. From stimulating the liver to regrow to helping the body arrest the growth of cancer cells, we're dedicated to creating a better understanding of organ development.
