Successfully recruited new faculty to advance research in regenerative medicine that can impact health and well-being for Wisconsin residents and beyond
Provided funds to support the work of Allison Ebert, PhD. The lab made important contributions in the area of neurodegenerative disease research by using human stem cells to study spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Parkinson's disease (PD), and muscular dystrophy. Data produced have been important for the scientific field, indentifying novel aspects of disease processes that may one day affect the broader public health domain, including identifying a novel finding in SMA that astrocytes, the support cells of the nervous system, are dysfunctional and may contribute to disease processes, which may help develop more targeted therapies. In addition, published a novel method to generate skeletal muscle from stem cells to support the study of ALS.
Provided start-up funds to support the work of Michelle A. Battle, PhD. The lab established robust research into novel roles for GATA proteins and E-cadherin in intestinal development and function in mouse models and using human pluripotent stem cells (hIPS), which has identified answers to basic questions about human intestinal development and the ability to test the efficacy and safety of novel treatments. Lab's work resulted in multiple publications, poster presentations, and presentations to disseminate findings and advance further research and discovery.
