Regenerative Medicine in the News...
Creating Medical Devices with Dissolving Metal
Pitt researchers as well as collaborators at the University of Cincinnati and North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University are creating new alloys and new manufacturing processes that suit clinical demands. The consortium seeks to design devices that can adapt to changes in a patient's body and dissolve once healing has occurred.
Pitt to Lead Center of Excellence in National Big Data Research Consortium
The NIH has awarded Pitt an $11 million, 4-year grant to lead a Big Data to Knowledge Center of Excellence, an initiative that will help scientists capitalize more fully on large amounts of available data and to make data science a more prominent component of biomedical research. McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine affiliated faculty member Ivet Bahar, PhD, is a co-director of the new Center for Causal Modeling and Discovery which will be part of the elite national team.
Studying How Cancer Spreads to Bone
With a $2 million, 5-year grant from the National Cancer Institute McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine affiliated faculty member Hongjiao Ouyang, DDS, PhD, DMD, and researchers at the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine will examine the molecular mechanisms that allow certain cancers, particularly multiple myeloma, to spread to the bone.
