"Delivering the Promise of Regenerative Medicine"
Two key challenges in regenerative medicine are survival and integration of exogenous transplanted cells or endogenous stimulated cells. To address these issues, we have designed bioengineered materials that both promote cell survival and enhance the environment in which the cells are transplanted. Using pro-survival factors incorporated into the design of injectable hydrogels and innovative biomolecule delivery strategies, we have had some success in animal models of blindness, stroke and spinal cord injury.
