Discoveries for a Better Tomorrow

Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine

Rebuilding Tissues and Organs - Jennifer Elisseeff, Ph.D.

Dr. Elisseeff and her team are designing scaffolds to help our bodies heal themselves after injury.

Regenerating Damaged Tissues – Erika Matunis, Ph.D.

Dr. Matunis and her team are looking to identify conditions that allows stem cells to thrive. That knowledge could lead to innovative therapies to regenerate many kinds of damaged tissues.

Healing by Regeneration - Luis Garza, M.D., Ph.D.

Dr. Garza's lab is working to reactivate the codes that allowed our cells to build our organs. Harnessing this code as adults could change typical healing from scarring to regeneration.

Facial Bones Regeneration – Warren L. Grayson, Ph.D.

Warren Grayson, Ph.D., is working alongside teams of engineers, plastic and orthopaedic surgeons, a material scientist and a stem cellologist to develop innovative 3-D printing technologies that—together with stem cells from all fat tissues—can regenerate facial bones loss at injury or disease.
