Cells transplanted into the retina transfer materials to recipient cells through nanotubes.
Medicine by Design-funded researchers generate cells that will impact treatments for bile duct disorders as a result of cystic fibrosis
Newly-generated cells may lead to a deeper understanding of bile duct disease and be a powerful tool for finding new treatments.
Medicine by Design-funded research finds transplanting insulin-producing cells with blood vessels may help reverse diabetes
Researchers have engineered a new method to improve the survival and potency of cell transplants to treat diabetes.
Computational biology study found two fundamental mechanisms involved in the cell play important roles and may help better control cells used in regenerative medicine applications
Medicine by Design-funded scientists discover a new stem cell property that could enhance life-saving blood stem cell transplants
Researchers say the findings lay groundwork that could lead to methods for expanding stem cell numbers from donated cord blood biobanks to improve availability for people with leukemia.
New research shows diabetes drug could provide brain protection to children who get radiation for brain tumours
Thanks to funding from Medicine by Design, a University of Toronto scientist and her team are closer to finding a way to protect the brain from damage for children who must be treated with cranial radiation.
Using state-of-the art sequencing technology, Medicine by Design-funded scientists have revealed how stem cells are able to generate new blood cells throughout our life, and how these same cellular mechanisms can evade chemotherapy to survive and cause relapse many years later.
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 researchers re-engineer enzyme that could help reverse damage from spinal cord injury and stroke
New version is more stable than the protein that occurs in nature, and could lead to new treatments for reversing nerve damage caused by traumatic injury or stroke.
Medicine by Design-funded researchers develop cell injection technique that could help reverse vision loss
The technique could point the way toward new treatments with the potential to reverse forms of vision loss that are currently incurable.
