Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cells

figure2 page-1Several faculty affiliated with the Barshop Institute are working on research concerning regenerative medicine and stem cells. The aims of these studies are to develop new methods to use stem cells for healing organs and tissues that have been damaged by aging and age-related diseases. Related studies are aimed at understanding changes in the stem cells in the body during aging.

Comparative Biology of Aging

Panel2 NMR1_pageThe comparative biology of aging uses natural variation in aging rate among different animal species to investigate mechanisms that modulate the aging process itself. Species most commonly used in laboratory research are distinguished by their lack of success at combating the ravages of aging.
