Virtual Lecture: Deconstructing Regenerative Medicine: From Cells to Exosomes and Defined Factors
Timothy A. Johnson Medical Scholar Lecture presented by the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute at VTC and the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine
Dr. Marbán's current research uses biologically based therapies for cardiac regeneration and biological pacemakers. His laboratory is studying various methods of delivering the cells and determining the immunogenicity of allogeneic stem cells. In this seminar, Marbán will discuss the use of exosomes as cell-free therapeutic candidates in the process of mechanistic investigations into cell therapies for heart disease, and outline how the next generations of cell-free biologics may provide the benefits of cell therapy without the intrinsic limitations.
This is a free event hosted by the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute and the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine. The Timothy A. Johnson Medical Scholar Lecture Series hosts clinician scientists who are exploring frontiers of medicine. These lectures are principally intended for Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine students and Virginia Tech students in Translational Biology, Medicine, and Health graduate program. Virginia Tech and Carilion Clinic faculty, staff, and students may also attend.
