Welcome to the OHSU Center For Regenerative Medicine

The OHSU Center for Regenerative Medicine investigates the use of cell therapeutics and novel biomaterials for the treatment of diseases and injuries. Focusing on translational research, researchers at the Center for Regenerative Medicine work to translate therapeutics from the lab bench to the hospital and battlefield, bringing cutting edge therapies and treatments into the hands of physicians and their patients.  Follow the link to read center director Dr. Kenton Gregory's full message.

Launch of phase 3 clinical trial for traumatic brain injury

The OHSU Center for Regenerative Medicine, in collaboration with the VA hospital, is pleased to announce the imminent kickoff of a multi-center, phase 3 clinical trial to investigate the PoNSTM device for use in traumatic brain injury.  The news has gained the attention of the international media.

Collaboration between HemCon and OHSU is awarded NIH grant for the development of a transurethral hemostatic device

Center Scientist Dr. Hua Xie will serve as the Co-Primary Investigator in the newly announced collaborative study with Portland-based HemCon Medical Technologies, Inc. (HemCon) to develop a novel chitosan endoluminal hemostatic device to control and prevent prostatic bleeding during prostatic surgery such as transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP).  The device will enable rapid control of bleeding, reduce discomfort associated with extended catheterization, and more significantly enable reduction in hospital stays and expenditure. The OHSU Center for Regenerative Medicine will receive funding as a subcontractor on the NIH Grant.  Read the official announcement.

Vatheuer Family Foundation announces continuing partnership with the OHSU Center for Regenerative Medicine

The generous support of of the Vatheuer Family Foundation is a powerful vote of confidence in the promising regenerative therapies being explored at the CRM.  It helps to assure we may continue to produce cutting edge research in the field.  More can be learned about our partnership on the Vatheuer Family Foundation Website.

Giving to CRM

Among the many potential benefits of regenerative medicine research are the possibilities of mending ailing hearts, repairing damaged nerves, and repairing muscle tissue. Contributing to basic and translational research is the best way to advance the understanding of the regenerative capacities of the human body and move these regenerative therapies from the lab to the bedside.
