Mechanically-induced regeneration

Skeletal muscle and satellite cells are sensitive to biophysical and microenvironmental cues, and there is evidence that physical manipulation of damaged muscle may promote recovery. David Mooney’s lab has used biphasic ferrogel scaffolds to create…

Polymeric material for dentin restoration

David Mooney’s lab has demonstrated the use of triacrylates TMPTA and PETA as tools for the repair of dental tissues. They found that dental pulp stem cells (DPSCs) adhered to these triacrylate polymers, which had been cured by visible light, and…

In vivo gene editing in dystrophic muscle

Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) is a debilitating disease caused by the absence of dystrophin, a protein expressed in muscle fibers. This X-linked disease affects 1 in 3000/4000 male births and average life expectancy is 26. While improvements in…
