Cellular and molecular regeneration and repair laboratory

In this multifaceted lab, research teams are working to harness the regenerative potential of different types of stem cells toward developing stem-cell-based therapies and, where possible, visualizing how they work in the body under image guidance.

Clinically directed aims are to design strategies to repair damaged heart tissue and blood vessels; to rebuild immune systems that have been devastated by disease or the toxic effects of treatment; and to develop methods to be able to see these processes as they happen inside the body.
