Organ Repair (liver, kidney, pancreas, etc.)
Research directed to the repair of organs encompasses the development of scaffold-less approach to engineer 3-D tissues, use of stem cell lines to create organs for repair and for research/ screening, and exploring genetically altered mice to understand mechanisms of tissue formation and organogenesis.
