Breakthrough for stem cell therapies (2016)


  Last updated June 5, 2017 at 10:59 am


Stem cell therapies capable of regenerating any human tissue damaged by injury, disease or ageing may be available within a few years, following landmark research led by UNSW Australia researchers.

Associate Professor John Pimanda and Dr Vashe Chandrakanthan developed the revolutionary repair technique, which is similar to the method used by salamanders to regenerate limbs, and which has the potential to repair everything from spinal discs to bone fractures.
