Regenerative approaches could foster healing from COVID-19

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles

Regenerative Medicine aims not only to repair or restore the function of cells, tissues or organs, but also the whole person. The latter is particularly important amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Regenerative approaches draw on the body’s natural abilities to heal, focus on establishing the healing environments and building new, healthy ways of functioning. These aspects […]

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

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles

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 zero in on damaged proteins […]

Meet researcher Saad Kenderian: Using regenerative cell therapy to recognize and attack cancer

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles

For as long as he can remember, Saad Kenderian, M.B., Ch.B., wanted to be a physician. Nothing could blunt his resolve –not even when exploding bombs and trappings of war forced the medical school in his hometown of Baghdad, Iraq, to close briefly. It is with that same determination he conducts Mayo Clinic research into […]
