Stem-Cell Nanomedicine

Through a recently established partnership with the UCLA Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research, CNSI researchers are working to create nano-enabled materials and technologies for manipulating stem cell development and guiding tissue regeneration.  Using a modest amount of seed money we have launched a multidisciplinary team to work on a new scaffold designed to accelerate healing after acute cardiac injury, in a manner that minimizes scarring and regenerates healthy heart tissue.  This is one of several efforts we hope to launch that leverages synergy between stem cell medicine and nanosciences to deliver minimally invasive therapies for currently intractable diseases.
