February 7, 2019 | Categories: Core Faculty, Research | Tagged: ,

February 7, 2019 Of all the mysteries surrounding the beginning of human life, one question has drawn particular interest from researchers at the Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine (ISCRM). Simply put, for women who are unable to get pregnant, what is happening at the cellular level that is preventing life from taking hold? […] Read More

ISCRM Labs Collaborate to Grow Heart Tissue In Vitro

February 4, 2019 | Categories: Research | Tagged: , , ,

February 4, 2019 Heart failure is the leading cause of death in the world. In the United States alone, hundreds of thousands of people succumb to the disease every year, while the costs of care and lost productivity drain more than $200 billion from the economy. Recent breakthroughs in stem cell research offer hope for […] Read More

Gene Therapy Cassettes Improved for Muscular Dystrophy

February 1, 2019 | Categories: Research | Tagged: , , ,

February 1, 2019 Experimental gene therapy cassettes for Duchenne muscular dystrophy have been modified to deliver better performance.  The cassettes, which carry the therapy into muscle cells, contain newer versions of a miniaturized treatment gene. The micro-dystrophin, as the treatment gene is called, has been restructured to enhance its functionality. The revamped versions were developed […] Read More
