New Processes Could Provide Personalized Pain Treatment
Pittsburgh scientists including McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine faculty members Most pain studies focus only on biology or behavior, drug delivery or microscopic cell anatomy, but the research of McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine affiliated faculty members Jelena Janjic, PhD, and John Pollock, PhD, both at Duquesne University, incorporates each of these areas to personalize pain treatment.
Pitt, Carnegie Mellon Engineers Develop New Method to Explore Mechanical Communication Between Cells
When the body forms new tissues during the healing process, cells must be able to communicate with each other. For years, scientists believed this communication happened primarily through chemical signaling. Now researchers at Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh have found that another dimension – mechanical communication – is equally if not more crucial.
