Regenerative eyedrops tap blood for tears

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Gregory Williams turned to regenerative medicine for healing after a one-two punch to his health. The 63-year-old Florida man survived leukemia only to develop ocular graft-versus-host disease, a potentially blinding complication of the bone marrow transplant that put his cancer in remission. Ocular graft-versus-host disease is a chronic debilitating condition with no cure that causes […]

3D brain models advance Alzheimer’s disease research at Mayo Clinic

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

A 3D model of brain organoids — “a minibrain in a dish” — mimics human brain structure and provides a new scientific strategy for exploring the pathology of Alzheimer’s disease, Mayo Clinic research discovered. The study, which was published in Nature Communications, finds that the minibrain — an induced pluripotent stem cell-derived cerebral organoid 3D […]
