Regenerative Medicine Minnesota Grant Applications are Now Open

By Center for Regenerative Medicine centerforregmedmc

Regenerative Medicine Minnesota recently announced the release of the 2017-2018 grant applications for Education Programs, Biotechnology/Biobusiness, and Clinical Care.

Grant proposals are due Tuesday, February 14, 2017, by 5:00 PM CST. The Requests for Proposals (RFPs) and the application links can be found here.

Questions regarding the application process can be directed to the Regenerative Medicine Minnesota contact form.

Grant awards will be announced on April 30, 2017.

Regenerative Medicine Minnesota aims to improve the health of Minnesotans by advancing regenerative medicine research, education, industry and care delivery to patients. This state-wide initiative will open new economic opportunities through commercialization of technologies. Regenerative Medicine Minnesota leverages the strengths of Minnesota institutions to position the state at the forefront of regenerative medicine.

 In May of 2014, the Minnesota State Legislature allocated 10 years of support, $4.5 million (the first year) and $4.35 million per year thereafter, to fund research, education, patient care, and business development initiatives that improve or increase access to regenerative medicine throughout the state.

Regenerative Medicine has Potential to Change How We Approach Cardiovascular Disease

By Center for Regenerative Medicine centerforregmedmc

Reparative stem cells have the capability to restore function to damaged tissue by renewing cell growth (shown in green) in cardiac cells destroyed by heart disease.

An article in Cardiology News describes the effort to bring regenerative medicine into clinical practice for cardiovascular disease. Although routine stem cell applications for cardiovascular disease are not yet available, current research spans the spectrum of heart diseases, deepening our knowledge base. This new knowledge is translating into a regenerative medicine care that moves towards prevention, protection, and repair and away from fighting disease.

The article builds on a presentation delivered by Andre Terzic M.D., Ph.D., director of Mayo Clinic’s Center for Regenerative Medicine at the 2016 American Heart Association Scientific Sessions 2016 in New Orleans.

Read the article on Cardiology News: Regenerative medicine is likely game changer for cardiovascular disease.
