The Center for Regenerative Medicine and Cell Based Therapies

Regenerative medicine is the process of creating living, functional tissues to repair or replace tissue or organ function lost due to age, disease, damage or congenital defects. It includes the injection of stem cells or progenitor cells (also known as cell-based therapies), the induction of regeneration by biologically active molecules, and transplantation of in vitro grown organs and tissues. The core mission of the Center of Regenerative Medicine and Cell-Based Therapies (CRMCBT) is to productively engage related expertise in the local community, both inside as well outside Ohio State and to deliver innovative health care solutions through multidisciplinary partnerships. CRMCBT is committed to developing core as well as shared resources that may be leveraged by investigators throughout the campus to develop research on regenerative medicine and cell-based therapies.
