Tissue development ‘roadmap’ created to guide stem cell medicine

In a boon to stem cell research and regenerative medicine, scientists have created a computer algorithm called CellNet as a ‘roadmap’ for cell and tissue engineering, to ensure that cells engineered in the lab have the same favorable properties as… Read more →

Engineered hydrogel biomaterials for regenerative medicine applications

The Kavli Foundation Lecture series featured a prominent scientist in medical materials who has engineered tissues and medical materials such as a stretchy glue that could transform surgery. The presentation was made at the 248th National Meeting & Exposition of… Read more →

HART: From lab hardware to implantable organs

Expanding a company into a new field of science seems like a daunting challenge. However, Harvard Biosciences (HB) did just that when they aggressively took advantage of an opportunity in regenerative medicine to drive company growth, eventually spinning off Harvard Apparatus Regenerative… Read more →

New drug spurs liver regeneration after surgery

A new drug spurs liver regeneration after surgery, according to a paper published in The Journal of Experimental Medicine.

Liver cancer often results in a loss of blood flow and thus oxygen and nutrients to the liver tissue, resulting in… Read more →


Stem cells show promise for stroke in pilot study

A stroke therapy using stem cells extracted from patients’ bone marrow has shown promising results in the first trial of its kind in humans. The therapy uses a type of cell called CD34+ cells, a set of stem cells in… Read more →

Neurons derived from human iPSC and grafted into rats after spinal cord injury produce cells

Building upon previous research, scientists at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine and Veteran’s Affairs San Diego Healthcare System report that neurons derived from human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) and grafted into rats after a spinal… Read more →

Nerve conduit aids low-level laser therapy in sciatic nerve regeneration

Seeking a way to better repair nerve lesions using low-level laser therapy (LLLT), researchers at Central Taiwan University of Science and Technology (Beitun District, Taichung, Taiwan) developed a biodegradable nerve conduit that contains genipin-cross-linked gelatin with beta-tricalcium phosphate (TCP) ceramic… Read more →

Stem Cells From Nerves Form Teeth

Researchers at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden have discovered that stem cells inside the soft tissues of the tooth come from an unexpected source, namely nerves. These findings are now being published in the journal Nature and contribute to brand new… Read more →

Discovery may make it easier to develop life-saving stem cells

Not unlike looking for the proverbial needle in a haystack, a team of Michigan State University researchers have found a gene that could be key to the development of stem cells — cells that can potentially save millions of lives… Read more →

Researchers develop tissue engineered bone grafts for healing large bone defects

Bone is one of the most frequently transplanted tissues. And the demand is rising. Transplants treat large defects like those caused by trauma, complicated fractures, tumour resection or osteoporosis. Conventionally, a piece of bone is transferred from one body site to… Read more →
