Regenerative Medicine Research

At the McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine, researchers from a score of scientific and clinical specialties develop ways to replace, repair, and regrow diseased or damaged tissues. They seek treatments for some of our era's most critical medical challenges: organ failure, spinal cord injuries, diabetes, and Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases. The regenerator's toolkit includes artificial organs, engineered compounds, and specially grown tissues and cells — including stem cells.
