Regenerative medicine researchers at Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine have addressed a major challenge in the quest to build replacement kidneys in the lab. Working with human-sized pig kidneys, the scientists developed the most successful method to date to keep blood vessels in the new organs open and flowing with blood. If proven successful, the new method could potentially be applied to other complex organs that scientists are working to engineer, including the liver and pancreas.
Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center has received a $3.8 million, five-year grant from the National Institute for Neurological Disorders and Stroke, part of the National Institutes of Health, to continue studying the effects of head impacts in youth league football.
