Regenerative Therapy for Pulmonary Hypoplasia – Rodrigo Ruano, M.D., Ph.D.

By Center for Regenerative Medicine centerforregmedmc

When a baby’s lungs are not adequately developed at birth, severe complications and even death can result. Rodrigo Ruano, M.D., Ph.D.,  a recent Regenerative Medicine Minnesota Translational Research Grant recipient, brings expertise in a technique that uses a minimally invasive procedure to intervene while the fetus is still in the uterus. He will participate as one […]

Regenerative Cardiac Synchronization – Satsuki Yamada, M.D., Ph.D.

By Center for Regenerative Medicine centerforregmedmc

A heart attack occurs when the flow of blood to the heart is blocked, most often by a build-up of fat, cholesterol and other substances, which form a plaque in the arteries that feed the heart (coronary arteries). The interrupted blood flow can damage or destroy part of the heart muscle. Satsuki Yamada, M.D., Ph.D., […]

Neuroregeneration Lab Opens on Florida Campus

By Center for Regenerative Medicine centerforregmedmc

There’s a new lab on Mayo Clinic’s Florida campus — and it’s not the traditional basic science lab. After a few months of construction and renovation, the Mayo Clinic Neuroregeneration Lab opened on the second floor of the Birdsall Research Building, significantly expanding the reach of regenerative medicine on campus. The nearly 500 square feet […]

Wyoming Man Becomes Mayo Clinic’s First Face Transplant Recipient

By Center for Regenerative Medicine centerforregmedmc

This story was previously published in Mayo Clinic Magazine. “I just felt … normal,” he recalls. “I didn’t even think about it until the next morning when I woke up. Nobody stared at me. Nobody questioned me. Nothing happened. I felt like another face in the crowd.” For a decade, it was a feeling that eluded Andy as children stared and […]

Immune-Building Stem Cell Research

By Center for Regenerative Medicine centerforregmedmc

In the 1970s, when Cesar A. Keller, M.D., started his career in pulmonology, lung transplantation was widely considered science fiction. Now, lung transplantation is a lifesaving option for thousands of people every year, but it’s not perfect, Dr. Keller says. For adults, the five-year survival rate is about 55 percent, according to 2008–2015 lung transplant data from the Department of Health and Human […]

Stem Cell Signaling May Repair Liver Injury

By Center for Regenerative Medicine centerforregmedmc

This story was previously published in Discovery’s Edge, Mayo Clinic’s research magazine. Researchers are continually learning more about the ability of stem cells to replace or repair damaged tissue. As it turns out, a signaling mechanism used by stem cells may also have therapeutic effects. Two new studies from the lab of Tushar Patel, M.B., […]

Renaissance in Medicine

By Center for Regenerative Medicine centerforregmedmc

This story was previously published in Discovery’s Edge, Mayo Clinic’s research magazine. Renaissance means rebirth or regeneration. Every few generations medicine takes a major turn. We’re at one of those junctures now with regenerative medicine — where healing is triggered from within the human body. It’s bringing a whole new universe to how physicians provide […]
