New Cell Therapy Strategy for Treatment of Spinal Cord Injuries
Cell therapy strategy for spinal cord injuries and regenerative diseases. Invention Summary: Spinal cord injuries (SCI) are damages to the spinal cord neural tissues that cause sensory loss and motor paralysis. SCI patients have no options for curative therapy. Thus, a mild contusion to the spinal cord results in massive neuronal and glial cell...

Personalized and Timed Release of Biomolecules
Invention Summary: Protein/peptide-based therapeutics are powerful medications, however their use is often hampered by very short half-lives and the necessity for intravenous or subcutaneous injections. Researchers from Rutgers University and Massachusetts General Hospital have developed a novel method to deliver protein/peptide-based therapeutics...

Cellular Reprogramming via Co-culture Bioreactor
Invention Summary: Co-culture systems are a popular method for engineering complex multicellular systems. Specifically, for cell therapy, where one cell population can help differentiate another therapeutic cell population. Current co-culture methods have shown benefits, though there still remains a need for a scalable, integrated system that can...

Stem Cell Growth Matrices with Enhanced Homogeneity, Stemness & Proliferation and Reduced Need for Feeding
Invention Summary: There is currently no universal platform or widely accepted technique to efficiently and reproducibly grow stem and progenitor cells (SPCs) in vitro. Stem cells require contact with extracellular matrices as well as signals from growth factors to proliferate and to retain their stemness (preventing their differentiation towards progenitors)....
