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 […]

How regenerative medicine is advancing ALS research

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

May is ALS Awareness Month, a time to reflect on the role of regenerative medicine research in advancing understanding and treatment of  amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or Lou Gehrig’s disease. This neurodegenerative disorder causes nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord to die, blocking signals to the muscles. That results in paralysis that robs […]
