Regenerative Medicine Minnesota awards 3 grants to Mayo Clinic researchers

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Regenerative Medicine Minnesota, a statewide bipartisan initiative, has awarded three grants to Mayo Clinic for research to improve cancer treatment and nerve regeneration. Recognizing the need for a new approach to healthcare, Minnesota lawmakers established Regenerative Medicine Minnesota a decade ago. This state funded initiative is focused on advancing regenerative medicine in research, technology, education […]

Could bioprinted skin uncover a new treatment for eczema?

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Mayo Clinic has developed its first 3D prototype of human skin bioprinted to model inflammatory skin disease. 3D bioprinting is a technology that mixes bioinks with living cells to print natural tissue-like structures in three dimensions. This new technology provides the most human-like skin model for studying inflammatory conditions such as atopic dermatitis — more […]

A preclinical step toward treating chronic dry mouth

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Mayo Clinic researchers replicated chronic dry mouth from radiation damage in preclinical models, laying the foundation for stem cell research to regenerate salivary tissue after cancer. This discovery uses targeted X-radiation to mimic human injury and establish a lab model for testing cellular therapies for dry mouth. The study is published in Radiation Research. “The […]

Addressing diversity barriers to regenerative medicine

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

With the promise of regenerative medicine comes the risk of widening health care disparities. Sometimes the newest discoveries, such as regenerative interventions, are out of reach for people in diverse ethnic or socioeconomic groups — or they may not understand or trust new options for healing. Mayo Clinic is trying to overcome those barriers by […]

Molecular mapping of the heart to predict disease susceptibility

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Vulnerability to heart disease can be projected before symptoms occur, Mayo Clinic discovered in preclinical research. This proof-of-concept study revealed that heart muscle changes indicate who is vulnerable to disease later in life. These changes can be detected from blood samples through comprehensive protein and metabolite profiling. This exploratory mapping, conducted in the Marriott Family […]
