Welcome to the Hamon Center for Regenerative Science and Medicine
The Hamon Center for Regenerative Science and Medicine has three overarching goals:
- To answer fundamental questions regarding the mechanisms of tissue and organ formation and disease
- To discover strategies for tissue repair and regeneration based on a solid foundation of knowledge
- To educate future generations of scientists and clinicians who will develop this new scientific knowledge and translate it into novel human therapies

New CRISPR method efficiently corrects DMD defect in heart tissue
Researchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center’s Hamon Center for Regenerative Science and Medicine have developed a single cut CRISPR gene-editing technique that can potentially correct a majority of the 3,000 mutations that cause Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD).
Researchers reveal endocrine-producing microenvironment in embryonic pancreas
UT Southwestern researchers report that development of the endocrine pancreas is promoted by a weblike network of epithelial tubes that exist only transiently in the developing embryo.
