World-first regeneration of a living organ

It may not be to quite the same level achieved by Victor Frankenstein, but work by a team from the University of Edinburgh is likely to have significant real-world implications in the field of regenerative medicine. For the first time,… Read more →

Researchers Looking to Create New Bone Tissue Generation Technique


UT Arlington and Texas Health Arlington Memorial Hospital are investigating whether bone grown from the body’s own stem cells can replace traditional types of bone grafting.

The process, which has been successful in previous lab experiments, uses biodegradable polymer… Read more →

Engineered vaginas grown in women for the first time

Vaginas grown in a lab from the recipients’ own cells have been successfully transferred to the body for the first time.

The surgery was carried out on four women who were born without vaginal canals because of a rare condition.… Read more →

New materials based approaches for regenerative medicine and biosensing: Prof. Molly Stevens

Professor Stevens will talk on New materials based approaches for regenerative medicine and biosensing. Dr James Mason from the Pharmaceutical Biophysics Group will chair. Wine reception to follow.


Regulation of stem cell activity in the adult brain: Dr. Fancois Guillemot

Optical Pacemaker and Engineered Muscle Neurons Activate Paralyzed Limbs

Muscle paralysis can be caused by a number of factors, but injured motor neurons that no longer conduct signals from the brain to control muscle movement are often the underlying condition. While electrical stimulation holds promise for overcoming certain types… Read more →

New discovery gives hope that nerves could be repaired after spinal cord injury

A new discovery suggests it could one day be possible to chemically reprogram and repair damaged nerves after spinal cord injury or brain trauma.

Researchers from Imperial College London and the Hertie Institute, University of Tuebingen have identified a possible… Read more →

Team finds a better way to grow motor neurons from stem cells

Researchers report they can generate human motor neurons from stem cells much more quickly and efficiently than previous methods allowed. The finding, described in Nature Communications, will aid efforts to model human motor neuron development, and to understand and treat… Read more →

Breakthrough in stem cell Manufacturing technology

Scientists at The University of Nottingham have developed a new substance that could simplify the manufacture of cell therapy in the world of regenerative medicine.

Cell therapy is an exciting and rapidly developing area of medicine in which stem cells… Read more →

Vibration may help heal chronic wounds, researchers say

Wounds may heal more quickly if exposed to low-intensity vibration, report researchers at the Univ. of Illinois at Chicago.

The finding, in mice, may hold promise for the 18 million Americans who have type 2 diabetes, and especially the quarter… Read more →
