‘Brain Glue’ repairs traumatic brain injuries

The Brain Glue is a hydrogel matrix with a gelatin-like consistency that acts as a scaffolding for transplanted stem cells, which are capable of repairing damaged tissue. With the unique ability to take the shape of the void left in the brain after a severe trauma, the Brain Glue will enable a more natural healing environment for stem cells to colonize and .......►Read More

New livestock model for stroke

Using their model, the team has shown that induced neural stem cells, or iNSCs, can replace stroke-damaged brain tissue and stimulate neuroplasticity-the brain's ability to naturally repair itself.Through this model, the research team was able to more precisely establish the repair mechanism by which stem cells work in neural tissue regeneration►Read More
