Skeletal Program


Human stem cells, isolated from bone marrow, home to a fractured and osteoporotic vertebra.


The Skeletal Program develops protocols to differentiate adult and induced pluripotent stem cells into the desired cell type for delivery into an injured area. This stem cell technology has already proven effective in repairing complex fractures in the vertebrae, skull, jaws and long bones, as well as torn tendons and injured intervertebral discs.

Some research projects conducted by the Skeletal Program aim to model the progression of various degenerative disorders and study their mechanism to facilitate future drug and treatment discovery.  

Our next step in this research is to conduct preclinical and clinical trials that utilize this technology for various musculoskeletal injuries and disorders.
