Center for Regenerative Biology and Medicine

 

The Center for Regenerative Biology and Medicine studies how to regenerate tissues and organs damaged by injury or disease, particularly the spinal cord, brain and eye tissues, musculoskeletal tissues and cardiovascular tissues.

The Center is the only multidisciplinary program in the world to include amphibians as research models. By researching amphibian and plant regenerative mechanisms, which are greater than those of mammals, the Center aims to develop a regenerative medicine that improves the quality of life for persons suffering from debilitating tissue damage.
