  • Beta Cell Regeneration
    • Producing glucose-responsive, insulin-making cells in the laboratory, which may lead to new treatments for diabetes.
  • Cardiac Regeneration
    • Stimulating the repair capacity of a patient's own stem cells prior to delivery into the heart is creating new regenerative platforms for patients with life-threatening heart disease.
  • Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome
    • Studying the genetic basis for this congenital defect and how regenerative therapies can strengthen the hearts of these patients and delay — or even prevent — the need for heart transplants.
  • Liver Regeneration
    • Developing and refining a number of regenerative liver therapies and devices for patients who today must wait for whole-liver transplants.
  • Lung Regeneration
    • Leading research into lung preservation, lung re-cellularization and stem cell engineering to develop new regenerative therapies for a wide range of lung diseases.
  • Musculoskeletal Regeneration
    • Creating therapeutic approaches to treat injury, degeneration and malformation of the skeleton, muscles and connective tissues.
  • Neuroregeneration
    • Taking a multidisciplinary approach to regenerating and repairing nerve damage from spinal cord injury, stroke and degenerative neurological diseases.
  • Plastic and Regenerative Surgery
    • Developing treatments for congenital anomalies of the hands and face, burns, limb and muscle loss, aging, facial nerve injuries, and other reconstructive needs.
  • Valve and Vascular Repair and Regeneration
    • Creating biological heart valves, identifying new stem cells, and developing ways to enhance blood vessel growth and repair to treat the underlying sources of cardiovascular diseases.
