Stem Cells and Disease

Researchers Related to Stem Cells and Disease

Researchers at the Gates Center are studying stem cells to see their relationship to tissue formation and disease. Susan Majka, PhD is studying the role that stem cells play in lung disease and the regeneration of damaged lung tissue. Brad Olwin PhD research has shown that stem cells transplanted into mice whose muscles’ have been injured, permanently changed the cells making them resistant to the aging process in muscle. These findings could help reduce muscle loss in patients with muscular dystrophy or the elderly. Dwight Klemm, PhD, is studying how bone marrow stem cells create new fat cells. These fat cells make other cells in the body less responsive to insulin, which can lead to type 2 Diabetes.
