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

Scientists reprogram mature mouse neurons

UT Southwestern researchers attempting to transform supporting brain cells into neurons instead reprogrammed mature inhibitory neurons into a different type of neuron that creates the neurotransmitter lost in Parkinson’s disease.    

CRISPR halts Duchenne muscular dystrophy progression in dogs

Eric Olson’s group has used CRISPR gene editing to halt the progression of Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) in a large mammal. The research published in Science documents unprecedented improvement in the muscle fibers of dogs with DMD.
