Sunday House Call, #502, September 14, 2014: Stem cell regeneration

Sunday House Call, #502, September 14, 2014

 

Topics today include:

 

Why do our bodies find it increasingly difficult to repair damaged tissue even from normal everyday stresses and strains?

What happens to us when we age that prohibits effective healing?

A team from the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute has published a study in the September 7 edition of Nature Medicine that answers this question with respect to our skeletal muscle.

 

Joining us today to discuss these findings and potential implications for future research is Dr. Michael Rudnicki, senior scientist at the OHRI and professor of medicine at the University of Ottawa.

 

Plus your calls.
