Repairing the Failing Brain, a Public Forum on Stem Cells and Neurodegenerative Disease

January 10, 2019 | Categories: Public Event

“It can sometimes seem that research is moving too slowly to help real patients, but from the speakers tonight, it sounds like stem cell therapies are opening more avenues and creating more optimism and hope for treatments for specific disorders in the next decade.”  – Public Forum Attendee Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and other neurodegenerative diseases impact […] Read More

Enhancing the Development of Heart Cells Using Materials Derived From Silk

December 17, 2018 | Categories: Announcements, Core Faculty, Heart Regeneration, Research

In an exciting breakthrough that may have implications for stem cell-based treatment of heart disease, the lab of Dr. Deok-Ho Kim at the Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine (ISCRM) has successfully used silk-based materials to enhance the development of stem-cell derived cardiomyocytes. In a recent study detailed in the Journal of Materials Chemistry, […] Read More

Potential Seen for Tailoring Acute Myeloid Leukemia Treatment

December 3, 2018 | Categories: Announcements, Research | Tagged: , ,

Drug response screening of leukemia stem cells offers clues to relapse and suggests ways to improve patient-specific therapies Advances in rapid screening of leukemia cells for drug susceptibility and resistance are bringing scientists closer to patient-tailored treatment for acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Research on the drug responses of leukemia stem cells may reveal why some […] Read More

Major NIH-CASIS Grant for Team Led by Dr. Deok-Ho Kim

October 9, 2018 | Categories: Announcements | Tagged: , ,

An interdisciplinary team led by ISCRM Faculty Member Deok-Ho Kim has been awarded a new NIH-CASIS Tissue Chips in Space UG3/UH3 grant to support research that aims to improve our understanding of how extended periods in microgravity affect the functional capacity of human myocardial tissue and that could have significant impact on the development of deep space missions in the near future. The work funded by the grant will involve two separate missions to the International Space Station. Read More
