The project, part of the Human Cell Atlas, seeks to build a more complete map of the human liver and is a “direct extension” of the work the Toronto team has already done with support from Medicine by Design

Medicine by Design researchers featured in Science story on reprogramming cells into neurons to treat brain injury

Cindi Morshead and Maryam Faiz talk about the work they presented at the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience.

How the first “map” of the human liver came together through a collaboration sown by Medicine by Design

Believed to be the first time a human organ has been charted at the single-cell level, the research illuminates the basic biology of the liver in ways that could eventually increase the success of transplant surgery and enable viable regenerative medicine treatments for liver disease.

Research team harnesses engineering, biology and medicine in effort to stimulate muscle to fix itself

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.
