Scientists from the USC Stem Cell laboratory of Neil Segil have identified a natural barrier to the regeneration of the inner ear’s sensory cells, which are lost in hearing and balance disorders. Overcoming this barrier may be a first step in returning inner ear cells to a newborn-like state that’s primed for regeneration, as described in a new study published in Developmental Cell.
“Permanent hearing loss affects more than 60 percent of the population that reaches retirement age,” said Segil, who is a Professor in the Department of Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine, and the USC Tina …
Students from USC’s Master of Science in Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine
Students share their experiences in USC’s Master of Science in Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine degree program. The one-year program with an optional second research year offers courses in cutting-edge biomedical science, including developmental biology, human embryology, regenerative medicine and the translational and therapeutic aspects of stem cell technology.
Three scientists from Keck Medicine of USC have won grants exceeding $4.3 million from the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) for research that includes creating a temporary liver for patients, finding novel ways to …
