Harnessing the body’s ability to heal

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

Researchers at Mayo Clinic are studying ways to engineer human-like tissue to bolster the body’s ability to heal itself. Scientists in the Regenerative Medicine Biomaterials and Biomolecules Lab have engineered biomaterials that could regenerate tissue capable of restoring injured nerves and bones. They’ve discovered that biomaterials derived from polymers are biodegradable. When used along with […]

Mayo Clinic Research Discovers a Molecular Switch for Repairing Central Nervous System Disorders

By Susan Buckles Susan Buckles (@susanbuckles)

A molecular switch has the ability to turn on a substance in animals that repairs neurological damage in disorders such as multiple sclerosis (MS), Mayo Clinic researchers discovered. The early research in animal models could advance an already approved Food and Drug Administration therapy and also could lead to new strategies for treating diseases of […]
