New T32 Grant – Studies in Translational Regenerative Medicine
Congratulations to Dr. George Christ, Professor, WF Institute for Regenerative Medicine, who was recently awarded a T32 grant entitled “Studies in Translational Regenerative Medicine”. Dr. Christ has a broad interest in muscle physiology, intercellular communication and the role of smooth muscle in the function and dysfunction of visceral and vascular tissues.
Regenerative medicine encompasses both tissue engineering and self-healing, and the discipline has emerged as a hugely valuable one with immense ramifications for improving human health.
This new grant will include 6 areas of research focus: 1) urological, 2) cardiovascular, 3) musculoskeletal, 4) endocrine tissue, 5) stem cells, and 6) biomaterials/enabling technologies.
