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…

Vertical silicon nanowires as a universal platform for highly efficient delivery of bioactive molecules into living cells

This platform consists of an array of surface-modified vertical silicon nanowires that have been chemically grown or etched on a wafer and to which virtually any kind of bioactive species (drug, protein, nucleic acid, nanoparticles) may be attached…

In vitro models and method of treatment for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)

It has been impossible to isolate viable human motor neurons from patients or from postmortem samples to investigate the mechanisms leading to neural degeneration in ALS. A potential solution is to use embryonic stem cells (ESC) as a renewable…

Using (-)-indolactam V to induce differentiation of human and mouse embryonic stem cells into pancreatic lineage

• ILV can be used alone, or in combination with growth factors, to direct differentiation of ESCs into pancreatic specification. ILV is effective on human ESC lines and mouse ESC lines. • ILV is effective on human ESC lines HUES 2, 4 and 8. After 4…
