The Aging of Macrophages Impairs Peripheral Nerve Regeneration

Macrophages of the innate immune system, cells derived from monocytes, are involved in many processes in tissue beyond merely hunting down invading pathogens. They are also important to the processes of tissue maintenance regeneration following injury. Like all aspects of the immune system, macrophage behavior becomes dysregulated with age, a consequence of changes in the […]

A research team at Dongguk University, led by Professor Kim Gyo-beom, de-velops tissue engineering platform technology for joint tissue regeneration

A research team led by Professor Kim Gyo-beom of Dongguk University’s Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering has developed the latest technology for joint tissue regeneration via simultaneous delivery of therapeutic growth factors and adi-pose derived stem cells into the body. The work was published in the Journal of Controlled Release (Impact Factor: 7.727, JCR […]
