Research in this area focuses on identifying and manipulating stem cells to replace tissues damaged by disease and injury. It is estimated that many diseases could ultimately be treated with stem cell-based therapies.
Scientists here investigate new ways to use adult and embryonic stem cells to promote regeneration and to generate tissues for transplantation to cure childhood disease. The Cincinnati Children's Research Foundation has initiated a seven-year expansion project that includes a new state-of-the-art research building and a commitment to hire new faculty members that study stem cell biology.
