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.

Artificial Organ Research

Artificial organs can sustain patients during their long wait for donor organs and sometimes eliminate the need for transplantation altogether.

Cell Therapy Research

We can coax cells to grow into just the right kind of tissue to heal an injury or cure a disease.

Tissue Engineering Research

Made of cells and synthetics, tailor-made materials from the lab can replace injured or diseased tissues.

Outcomes with Innovative Protocols

It’s not enough to make discoveries in the lab; we help transform them into cures.​​​​​​
