Ramandeep S. Takhter, Ph.D.; Satsuki Yamada, M.D., Ph.D.; Christopher Livia, M.D.-Ph.D. student; Lois A. Rowe; Atta Behfar, M.D., Ph.D.; Paul G. Stalboerger, M.S., PMP; and Tyra A. Witt collaborate to translate basic science into patient care therapies.
Dhivya V. Meenakshi Siddharthan, Ph.D., performs a biomarker analysis using a protein array. Proteomic analysis enables identification of potential biomarkers in early disease diagnosis. This array platform helps researchers carry out high-content screening of protein expression.
Matthew L. Hillestad, Ph.D., prepares iodine-based solutions for staining the heart's conductive tissue.
Mayo Clinic Van Cleve Cardiac Regenerative Medicine Program researchers are developing next-generation stem cell therapies with optimized regenerative capacity.
Researchers are investigating alternatives to stem cell-based approaches to improve the accessibility and consistency of therapeutic benefit and to lower costs.
By combining stem cell biology, material science and 3-D printing technology, investigators are finding new ways to engineer cardiac tissue.
The Mayo Clinic Van Cleve Cardiac Regenerative Medicine Program works with collaborators throughout Mayo Clinic to advance research efforts.
The program works with the Center for Regenerative Medicine's Shared Services teams, such as the Advanced Product Incubator team.
The Mayo Clinic Van Cleve Cardiac Regenerative Medicine Program was funded with the generous support of Russ and Kathy Van Cleve.
