From trying to create new cartilage in the laboratory to clinical trials for patients with brain injuries, scientists and physicians at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) are leading the way in stem cell research.
In partnership with Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center, UTHealth was the first in the country to intravenously inject a stroke patient’s own stem cells in a trial funded by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, part of the National Institutes of Health. Learn how researchers continue to push the boundaries of this promising field.
