Twenty-seven trainees from Medicine by Design-funded laboratories have been awarded Medicine by Design Travel Awards to attend this key Canadian regenerative medicine conference.
Project explores whether a novel biomaterial scaffold can coax stem cells that are already present in the muscle to spring into action to heal traumatic injuries.
This month-long series of workshops, lab sessions, tours and conferences aims to advance knowledge and skills required to commercialize new therapies.
Sefton, who also heads a collaborative team project focused on using novel biomaterials to stimulate skeletal muscle to repair itself, begins his five-year term on July 1, 2017.
Read about three Medicine by Design-funded team projects that are unlocking the power of stem cells to better understand and treat neurological diseases.
Six innovative projects investigating the application of new tools and devices to regenerative medicine and four outstanding post-doctoral fellows receive awards.
Meet the latest recipients of Medicine by Design’s Post-Doctoral Fellowship Awards.
Twelve targeted projects and two post-doctoral fellowships that are expanding the frontiers of stem cell research will share $1.2 million in funding thanks to programs supported jointly by the University of Toronto’s Medicine by Design initiative and the Ontario Institute for Regenerative Medicine.
Giles Santyr is testing whether novel imaging approaches can be used to track where stem cells go when they are introduced into the lungs and what happens to them when they get there.
Penney Gilbert hopes to gain new insights into Duchenne muscular dystrophy using a new, three-dimensional tissue culture platform that can grow innervated human muscle in the lab more quickly and efficiently than previous methods.
