Research team’s ongoing work on using stem cells to encourage brain and muscle to self-repair has celebrated successes
An interdisciplinary team of scientists, funded by Medicine by Design, aims to use retinal stem cells to restore vision.
Medicine by Design-funded researchers develop a new tool for scooping contents of individual cells from their local environment
Scientists can now select individual cells from their local environment & study their molecular contents. The new tool will enable a deeper study of stem cells and other rare cell types for diagnostics & therapy.
Medicine by Design-funded research team says the new treatment approach is not far from clinical trials. This is one of the ways Medicine by Design is transforming human health.
Seven funded projects poised to impact many diseases including cystic fibrosis, ALS and vision loss.
Research to impact cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, autism, aneurysm and more.
U of T and SickKids researchers demonstrate drug stimulation of neural stem cell repair leads to promising impact on treatment of childhood brain injury in survivors of brain cancer
Cross-species study shows that Type 2 diabetes drug metformin could change the way childhood brain injury is treated
Medicine by Design is expanding its regenerative medicine research portfolio with the addition of four multi-disciplinary, multi-institution projects. “These team projects build on Medicine by Design’s successes over its first three years and will strengthen the University of Toronto and its affiliated hospitals as a global centre for regenerative medicine,” said Michael Sefton, executive director of Medicine by Design.
