Regenerative medicine seeks to replace lost, damaged or diseased tissue with new, healthy tissue through procedures not requiring organ donation and transplantation. Regenerative therapies have not been developed for most organ systems, including the brain, heart, kidney, pancreas, and joints. While strategies in the past decade have focused on potential therapies involving treatment with cell populations, tapping into natural regeneration programs and boosting the endogenous capacity of tissue to regenerate or rejuvenate is a prerogative for the field today. This is where the discovery science of developmental and regeneration biology and the application of regenerative medicine must meet and work together closely.
Duke Regeneration Center seeks to accomplish this goal, by bringing faculty, trainees and staff together to advance education, discovery science, translational research, and development of therapies.
Overview: Duke Regeneration Center (DRC) is pleased to announce an inaugural fellowship for Duke medical students interested in regeneration research. The goal of this fellowship is to encourage the development of future physician-scientists who pursue basic research in regeneration and regenerative medicine fields that are linked to clinical areas of interest. It is recognized that… Continue Reading Regeneration Research Fellowship for Duke Medical Students
Duke University School of Medicine has established Duke Regeneration Center (DRC) to enhance discovery and applications in the broad field of tissue regeneration. DRC is pleased to announce availability of funding support to help DRC-affiliated labs recruit strong postdoctoral candidates. This funding mechanism is intended to support and accelerate the career development of postdoctoral trainees.… Continue Reading Postdoc Research Awards to Accelerate Career Autonomy
Duke Regeneration Center is exited to announce a call out for applications for a Regeneration Research Fellowship for Duke Medical students. Please see Programs & Funding Opportunities for additional information.
From the Fox Lab:
Delisa Clay successfully defended her thesis this week titled: “Mitotic DNA Damage Responses in Drosophila Polyploid Rectal Papillar Cells”
Dr. Don Fox will be giving an invited talk at the (virtual) Mount Desert Island Biological Labs meeting titled: “Polyploidy in Development, Evolution, and Disease”.
Duke Regeneration Center is exited to announce a call out for applications for postdoctoral research awards to accelerate career independence. Please see Programs & Funding Opportunities for additional information.
Drs. Ken Poss and David Sherwood awarded with a Pew Innovation Fund to study the coordinated signaling process that takes place within the body during tissue repair and regeneration. Click here to read more.
Delisa Clay of the Fox Lab is excited to announce her first author paper was accepted by the Journal of Cell Biology. The title of the paper is “Persistent DNA Damage Signaling and DNA Polymerase Theta Promote Broken Chromosome Segregation”.
Duke Regeneration Center launched July 1, 2021!
