Advancing healthy living with regenerative bioscience

Stroke, heart disease, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s are devastating diseases that touch nearly everyone’s lives. There are currently no cures for these diseases, but RBC researchers are working collaboratively using a variety of methods to change that reality. 

The RBC is a synergistic unit of researchers from a range of disciplines and institutions. Our researchers are making great strides in developing new cures to treat these diseases and transform the field of medicine along the way.

Georgia Magazine uncovers the healing powers of the RBC – read the entire issue at the link.
