Mayo Clinic and NASA – Exploring Two Frontiers

By Center for Regenerative Medicine centerforregmedmc

This story was previously published in Discovery’s Edge, Mayo Clinic’s research magazine. Space—with near-zero gravity, no atmosphere, and extremes of heat and cold—is an unusual and often hostile environment. But it’s also an opportunity—for medical researchers who see maladies and phenomena they can scarcely examine in the familiar environment of Earth. Several Mayo Clinic researchers […]

Stem Cells Splash Down From Space

By Center for Regenerative Medicine centerforregmedmc

After nearly a month orbiting the Earth attached to the International Space Station, the SpaceX Dragon capsule containing Dr. Abba Zubair’s stem cell research detached from the station and returned to Earth. The Dragon was recovered in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of southern California, on March 19. After SpaceX turns over the contents […]

The Case for Stem Cell Treatments for ALS

By Center for Regenerative Medicine centerforregmedmc

When nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord stop working normally there is a noticeable change in muscle movement and activity. Motor neurons work with the brain to control muscle movement such as gripping and walking. These activities become increasingly difficult with the onset of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) also known as Lou […]

Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine Lecture

By Center for Regenerative Medicine centerforregmedmc

Early in his career as a pediatric and transplant surgeon-scientist, Joseph P. Vacanti, M.D., was motivated by the problem of organ shortage for his tiny patients. It has led to a career long pursuit in solving the problem of organ availability for babies and young children. In an early case, finding a liver the right […]
