Mayo Clinic in Florida is building two suites dedicated to delivering the latest regenerative medicine technologies
Until recently, regenerative medicine has been relegated to the laboratory and clinical trials. Not anymore. Mayo Clinic in Florida is building two suites dedicated to delivering technologies that just a decade ago were unimaginable.
"Amazing things are happening here, with vast implications in neurodegenerative diseases, musculoskeletal conditions, heart, vascular and kidney disease," says Gianrico Farrugia, M.D., CEO of Mayo Clinic in Florida. "Regenerative medicine might also be a signature component to treating or curing individuals with spinal cord injuries, type 1 diabetes, Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease."
The Center for Regenerative Medicine builds on Mayo Clinic's extensive research resources and clinical practice, spanning the spectrum of discovery science, translational research and clinical application.
Specialized teams conduct research and translate discoveries to patient care addressing needs of patients with diabetes; heart, liver and lung diseases; neurological disorders; skeletal injuries; and congenital anomalies. Mayo Clinic researchers are working to identify a whole new generation of reparative solutions that will heal damaged tissues and organs, offering solutions and hope for all patients, including those who have conditions that today are beyond repair.
