A regenerative detour for lymphedema

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles

Mayo Clinic is refining its regenerative approach to treating lymphedema, a debilitating buildup of fluid after cancer treatment. Research by Antonio Forte, M.D., Ph.D., a Mayo Clinic plastic surgeon, seeks to better pinpoint who is most likely to benefit from surgery aimed at regenerating a faulty lymphatic system. Mayo Clinic’s Center for Regenerative Medicine supports […]

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

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles

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 […]

A regenerative approach to facial reconstruction after cancer

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles

Growing up in southern California, Sabrina Falcon was a self-described “sun baby” whose love of the outdoors reached the skies. Years later the flight attendant who is working on her pilot’s license was diagnosed with skin cancer on her nose — the basal cell type that typically grows slowly with low risk of metastasizing. After […]
