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 organs can sustain patients during their long wait for donor organs and sometimes eliminate the need for transplantation altogether. > Read more
We can coax cells to grow into just the right kind of tissue to heal an injury or cure a disease. > Read more
Made of cells and synthetics, tailor-made materials from the lab can replace injured or diseased tissues. > Read more
It’s not enough to make discoveries in the lab: We help transform them into cures. > Read more
