Regenerating diseased bones

By Susan Buckles @susanbuckles
Kendall Koens’ life is a dramatic reversal from what it was in 2006. Late stage cancer left him in a coma and on a ventilator fighting for survival. Aggressive chemotherapy was saving his life but slowly and silently destroying his hips joints. The financial planner from Rochester faced crippling pain typical of someone more [...]

Mayo Clinic research discovers how stem cells repair damage from heart attacks

By Susan Buckles @susanbuckles
Mayo Clinic researchers have uncovered stem cell-activated mechanisms of healing after a heart attack. Stem cells restored cardiac muscle back to its condition before the heart attack, in turn providing a blueprint of how stem cells may work. The study, published in NPJ Regenerative Medicine, finds that human cardiopoietic cells [...]

Improving remyelination for spinal cord injury: Arthur Warrington, Ph.D.

By Jennifer Schutz @jenniferschutz
Mayo Clinic researchers are probing potential ways to unleash the human body’s ability to heal neurological disorders like spinal cord injuries or multiple sclerosis. Myelin is the protective covering that surrounds nerve fibers in the brain, optic nerves and spinal cord. Demyelination, or injury to the myelin, slows electrical signals between brain cells, resulting [...]

Student-led interest group helps to build the future regenerative medicine workforce

By Jennifer Schutz @jenniferschutz
Educating the next-generation of regenerative physician-scientists is a strategic priority of the Mayo Clinic Center for Regenerative Medicine. And, as the field advances beyond traditional management of symptoms to addressing the underlying cause of disease through curative solutions, medical education must evolve to capitalize on this ongoing evolution. At Mayo Clinic, an interest group formed [...]
