Research Activities

Research activities in the Mayo Clinic Van Cleve Cardiac Regenerative Medicine Program focus on the following areas:

  • Cellular therapies. Mayo Clinic Van Cleve Cardiac Regenerative Medicine Program researchers are developing next-generation stem cell therapies with optimized regenerative capacity. Learn more about research on cellular therapies.
  • Acellular therapies. Researchers have established extracellular vesicles as an alternative to stem cell-based approaches to improve the accessibility and consistency of therapeutic benefit and to lower costs. Learn more about research on acellular therapies.
  • Tissue engineering. By combining stem cell and exosome biology, material science, and 3D printing technology, investigators are finding new ways to engineer cardiac tissue. Learn more about tissue engineering research.
