Researchers Explore the Use of Adult Stem Cells as Treatment of the Future

By Center for Regenerative Medicine centerforregmedmc

This story first appeared in Mayo Clinic’s email newsletter, In the Loop. When it comes to medical treatments, what sounds like science fiction today could someday become the standard in life-changing medicine. If the research turns out as hoped, stem cells — the “master cells” inside our bodies from which all other cells are generated and formed […]

Novel Stem Cell Treatment Means New Lease on Life

By Center for Regenerative Medicine centerforregmedmc

Halloween is an especially meaningful day for Jared Ausnehmer and his family. On Oct. 31, 2011, Jared’s family saw a news story about a man who had had stem cells injected into his heart to reverse damage from a heart attack. Jared’s mom, Patty Ausnehmer, wondered if this type of treatment could help her son, […]

Researching the Use of Stem Cells for ALS – Nathan Staff, M.D, Ph.D.

By Center for Regenerative Medicine centerforregmedmc

Nathan Staff, M.D, Ph.D., and his team are researching the potential of cell-based therapies to promote the healing response for patients with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS. A fatal neurodegenerative disease, ALS causes progressive paralysis and death in 2-5 years. Currently, no curative treatment exists for this devastating condition. While it is a rare disease, […]

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 […]

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., […]

Neuroregeneration Lab Opens on Florida Campus

By Center for Regenerative Medicine centerforregmedmc

There’s a new lab on Mayo Clinic’s Florida campus — and it’s not the traditional basic science lab. After a few months of construction and renovation, the Mayo Clinic Neuroregeneration Lab opened on the second floor of the Birdsall Research Building, significantly expanding the reach of regenerative medicine on campus. The nearly 500 square feet […]

Stem Cell Signaling May Repair Liver Injury

By Center for Regenerative Medicine centerforregmedmc

This story was previously published in Discovery’s Edge, Mayo Clinic’s research magazine. Researchers are continually learning more about the ability of stem cells to replace or repair damaged tissue. As it turns out, a signaling mechanism used by stem cells may also have therapeutic effects. Two new studies from the lab of Tushar Patel, M.B., […]

Mayo Clinic and NASA – Exploring Two Frontiers

By Center for Regenerative Medicine centerforregmedmc

This story was previously published in Discovery’s Edge, Mayo Clinic’s research magazine. Space—with near-zero gravity, no atmosphere, and extremes of heat and cold—is an unusual and often hostile environment. But it’s also an opportunity—for medical researchers who see maladies and phenomena they can scarcely examine in the familiar environment of Earth. Several Mayo Clinic researchers […]

Stem Cells in Space

By Center for Regenerative Medicine centerforregmedmc

On February 19, the latest rocket launch from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida, included a payload of several samples of donated adult stem cells from a research laboratory at Mayo Clinic’s Florida campus. The launch by SpaceX, an American aerospace manufacturer and space transport services company, is part of NASA’s commercial resupply missions to the […]
