RMT Podcast #55 – Newell Washburn, PhD

Regenerative Medicine Today welcomes Dr. Newell Washburn, who is an Assistant Professor, in the Departments of Chemistry and Biomedical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University.

Dr. Washburn’s primary research interests include wound healing and bone tissue engineering though the use of biomaterials that can used to form novel polymeric scaffolds for regenerative therapy, transport and interactions of signaling proteins with scaffolds and extracellular matrix. His focus is on creating materials capable of regulating the activities of soluble signaling proteins involved in inflammatory and immune responses. He discusses his current studies, and shares his vision on the application of these emerging technologies for clinical applications.

RMT Podcast #52 – Latha Satish, PhD

Regenerative Medicine Today welcomes Latha Satish, PhD.  Dr. Satish is a Research Assistant Professor, Scarless Wound Healing Program at the Allegheny-Singer Research Institute.

Her focus is on the biology of scarless wound healing, with specific interest on identifying novel genes that are responsible for scarless wound healing.

As she describes, wound healing is a complex biological process that involves migration and proliferation of cells to repopulate the defect, synthesis of extracellular matrix proteins and remodeling of scar to re-establish the organ integrity. Further complicating this is that to regenerate functional skin, the dermal and epidermal layers should act in an orchestrated manner. How the major cells of each layer, fibroblasts in the dermis and keratinocytes in the epidermis coordinate their response is unknown.
