UC Davis: $5.6M to Research Potential Cure for Spina Bifida

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Tue, Dec 04, 2018

UC Davis Health scientists are pursuing a new approach to repairing the birth defect that causes spina bifida. $5.66 million in research grant funding from The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) will allow a UCD research team to continue its work using stem cells and a biomaterial scaffold to fix the defect in the womb.

WUSTL Opens New Regenerative Medicine Research Center

Posted by Laura Braden on Tue, Dec 29, 2015

Life science research institutions around the country are constantly expanding and providing more space and opportunity for researchers to conduct their work. Recently, Baylor St. Luke's at the Texas Medical Center announced the construction of a new medical campus that was underway and UGA opened a new Veterinary Research Center earlier this year. Washington University in St. Louis is also expanding research space, with a newly opened Center for Regenerative Medicine.

Regenerative Biology Scientists at USC Learn From Alligator Teeth

Posted by Jaimee Saliba on Fri, May 17, 2013

As humans, our bodies have the ability to naturally regenerate both skin and hair, but we only get two sets of teeth, and that's one set more than many other mammals. Reptiles and fish, on the other hand, have the ability to regrow teeth throughout their lifetime. Though we have guessed that specialized stem cells are involved, the cellular and molecular mechanisms behind tooth renewal in these animals have not been well understood until now. A research team at the University of Southern California's Keck School of Medicine, led by Dr. Cheng-Ming Chuong, has recently published an article in PNAS detailing their study into the regrowth of alligator teeth. They chose a crocodilian model because the dentition is well-organized and implanted in sockets of the dental bone, similar to that of mammals (if more extensive) yet with the capacity for renewal. Contributors to the research included colleagues in Georgia, China, and the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, who presumably provided the live research subjects.
