Stem cells for bone regeneration

Equine studies

With our colleagues in the School of Veterinary Medicine and the Center for Equine Health at UCDavis, we are comparing the osteogenic potential of mesenchymal stem cells derived from equine bone marrow, fat and placental tissues. The efficacy of these cells for bone tissue regeneration will be assessed in large animal models
