Budget: 02/01/05 - 01/31/07
PI: Ying Song

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Although significant advances have been made in the field, the critical issues of mechanical strength and long-term storage methods limit progress in engineered vessels. It is well established that traditional cryopreservation results in damaging ice formation, both in the cells and in the surrounding extr...

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 07/01/04 - 12/31/05

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Advancements in high throughput screening, and mandates all over the world to reduce animal testing, have driven the development of a variety of assays to evaluate potentially new drugs and their side effects. Environmental monitoring of potentially harmful chemicals and by-products has also driven the develo...

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 02/15/04 - 08/14/05

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Organ transplantation remains the only available therapy for end-stage disease, thus a large donor pool is deemed essential to satisfy the current clinical organ demand. The use of hypothermia for isolated organ preservation has been proven an effective method for the protection of cells and tissues. Acid-...

Budget: 09/01/03 - 05/31/05

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Cell-based tissue engineering approaches to myocardial repair are 21st century solutions to an intractable problem. Because the adult heart lacks a pool of cells to effect repairs, it is incapable of effective cardiomyocyte regeneration after injury or infarction. Both direct cardiac myocyte cell transplantat...

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 07/01/03 - 12/30/04

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Fresh osteochondral allografts have been proven clinically effective. However, the logistics of getting fresh, viable cartilage from donor to recipient requires the development of tissue banking methods. Conventional cryopreserved osteochondral grafts perform poorly in vivo and it is well established, in othe...
