Treatment for Pressure Ulcers

In two of our recent studies, we assess a murine pressure ulcer model and show improved wound healing with injected adipose derived stem cells.

Tissue Engineered Scaffolds

Our stem cells have been used to develop new technologies for creating tissue engineered scaffolds for regeneration of nipple-areolar complexes.

STEM CELL

CHARACTERIZATION

Understanding the complexities of stem cell biology is crucial to knowing how to use them most effectively. We have performed several studies analyzing how donor age, protein expression, and cryopreservation affect stem cell’s ability to be used therapeutically.
