Researching the Use of Stem Cells for ALS – Nathan Staff, M.D, Ph.D.

By Center for Regenerative Medicine centerforregmedmc

Nathan Staff, M.D, Ph.D., and his team are researching the potential of cell-based therapies to promote the healing response for patients with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS. A fatal neurodegenerative disease, ALS causes progressive paralysis and death in 2-5 years. Currently, no curative treatment exists for this devastating condition. While it is a rare disease, […]

Persistence Powers Mayo Clinic’s Approach to Adult-Derived Stem Cell Therapies

By Center for Regenerative Medicine centerforregmedmc

This story was previously published in Mayo Clinic Magazine. Allan B. Dietz, Ph.D., never intended to be a scientist. His plan was to be a farmer, just like his father, grandfather and all the other Dietzes he knew. “I was going to be a farmer at first. Then I was going to be a veterinarian […]

Researching Regenerative Therapy for Diabetes – Patricia Devaux, Ph.D.

By Center for Regenerative Medicine centerforregmedmc

Patricia Devaux, Ph.D., is testing a new technology to reprogram human blood cells to go back to a state from which they can then develop into other kinds of cells, particularly insulin-producing cells for the treatment of diabetes. Her research focuses on the development of a new platform to reprogram the cells. This platform is […]

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., […]

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 […]
