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.
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.
