Regenerative Medicine at Mayo Clinic:

At Mayo Clinic, researchers in the Center for Regenerative Medicine are studying the emerging science of regenerative medicine, a therapeutic platform that aims to treat the root cause — rather than just the symptoms — of a disease.

Using regenerative medicine, researchers are creating new treatments that can actually repair your diseased, injured or congenitally defective tissues.

To achieve repair, and restore tissue and organ function, Mayo researchers are studying and testing three related strategies:

  • Replacement. Transplanting cells, tissues or organs into your body
  • Regeneration. Reprogramming your own cells in the laboratory and delivering them back into your body
  • Rejuvenation. Stimulating your body’s cells to self-renew

Recognizing the value and potential of regenerative medicine, Mayo Clinic is developing innovative techniques to treat many major diseases — such as diabetes, heart disease, degenerative joint conditions and neurological disorders — as well as wounds and other injuries.

For one Mayo researcher, philanthropic support has made possible cutting-edge research that uses stem cells to repair hearts.
