Regenerative Medicine

Regenerative medicine is a broad field that combines aspects of molecular and cell biology with biomaterials science to restore function to diseased or injured tissues and organs. These efforts often involve the application of exogenous factors (e.g., stem cells, growth factors, biomaterials, biophysical stimuli) as well as the activation of the patient’s own cells to regenerate the affected tissue. Current efforts at Penn State include developing novel approaches to enhance cardiovascular, pancreatic, musculoskeletal, and neural repair as well as exploring biophysical and chemical cues that guide stem cell differentiation.
