Milestone Reached in Work to Build Replacement Kidneys in the Lab

A new milestone has been reached in regenerative medicine. Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine scientists have, for the first time, kept blood vessels open and flowing with blood in a replacement kidney study. Lab-grown replacement organs using scaffoldings derived from animal organs have become a widely accepted method in regenerative medicine. The process involves continue reading

Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine Demonstrates Muscle Regeneration Proof-of-Concept

Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine is making strides with “in body” regeneration of muscle tissue. Funded by the Armed Forces Institute of Regenerative Medicine, Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine scientists have used rodent models to harness the body’s natural “regenerative machinery” to regrow segments of missing muscle. Traditional methods of muscle regeneration involve continue reading
