Cross-cutting research makes promising strides toward clinical testing
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.
Medicine by Design's $4-million Pivotal Experiment Fund aims to bridge one of the critical gaps in the “valley of death” between a research discovery and a translatable therapy.
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.
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.
