Two New Miller School Studies Show How Stem Cell Injections Improve Heart Structure

Circulation Research Features UM Team's Cellular Therapy Findings

Two Miller School of Medicine studies led by a team from the Interdisciplinary Stem Cell Institute use highly advanced cardiac imaging techniques to establish for the first time how stem cell injections are able to improve the structure of the heart — an important finding for the evolving field of regenerative medicine. The “Poseidon” and “Prometheus” studies were published in a recent issue of Circulation Research, which featured the Poseidon work on the cover and included an independent editorial on the significance of the results.

“We designed a protocol that enabled us to measure precisely what was happening in the heart following the stem cell injections,” said Joshua M. Hare, M.D., the Louis Lemberg Professor of Medicine and Director of the Miller School’s Interdisciplinary Stem Cell Institute (ISCI). “Our findings have important therapeutic implications for cardiac patients.”

Second Look Day Dazzles Class of 2018 Prospects

“You never get a second chance to make a good first impression” goes the old saying, but that isn’t always true. For Alexandra Young, who joined 137 other physicians-to-be in the Lois Pope LIFE Center’s Apex Auditorium on April 11 for the Miller School’s fourth annual Second Look Day, getting an up-close look at the campus was a first-time thrill.
