Steven G. Gabbe, MD, Senior Vice President for Health Sciences, The Ohio State University, Chief Executive Officer, The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center Announces the New Ohio State University Center for Regenerative Medicine and Cell-Based Therapies.
"Every day, we work together toward our common mission of improving people’s lives through innovation in research, education and patient care.
With this in mind, it is my pleasure to let you know about a new and exciting endeavor -- the creation of The Ohio State University Center for Regenerative Medicine and Cell-Based Therapies. This Center embodies our mission.
It is a collaboration of seven different colleges -- the College of Medicine, the College of Engineering, the College of Dentistry, the College of Nursing, the College of Veterinary Medicine, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the College of Pharmacy. And joining us in this endeavor is our neighbor, Battelle, the world’s largest, independent research and development organization.
This partnership of experts will work to discover new treatments that will speed wound healing and rehabilitation for so many patients. The Center’s mission is to build partnerships by utilizing the expertise of the local community to develop research programs on regenerative medicine and cell-based therapies. By working with the biomedical industry, we will deliver innovative health solutions to our patients.
Many people have been involved in the creation of the Center and that effort has been led by Chandan Sen, PhD, the Center’s director. The leadership of the Center includes key faculty from all seven of the colleges listed above and Nationwide Children’s Hospital.
Please join me in congratulating Dr. Sen, his staff and the entire leadership of The Ohio State University Center for Regenerative Medicine and Cell-Based Therapies on their important work and their commitment to improve people’s lives."
