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 […]

Regenerating the Lymph System

By Center for Regenerative Medicine centerforregmedmc

It was during a morning commute when Wendy Himley noticed her left foot was swollen. She wondered if she had sprained her ankle or stepped on a bee while wearing sandals. Nothing came to mind as a possible cause. The swelling went away but later returned and moved from her foot to her ankle. She […]

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 […]
