Toronto investigators part of international team receiving $4-million (U.S.) award from Chan Zuckerberg Initiative
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
Professor Shulamit Levenberg will serve as Medicine by Design’s first Scholar in Residence from July 15 to August 15, 2019.
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.
Finding inspiration from an unlikely source, a team led by Andras Nagy at Sinai Health System has an answer for one of the most pressing questions in cell therapy: how to ensure its safety
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.
