Recent Research on Tissue Regeneration

A recent paper whose lead author is HSDM alumnus Praveen Arany, MMSc11 (oral medicine), PhD11 (PhD in Biological Sciences in Dental Medicine), has generated widespread excitement and interest. The article, "Photoactivation of Endogenous Latent Transforming Growth Factor–β1 Directs Dental Stem Cell Differentiation for Regeneration," published in May 2014 in Science Translational Medicine, discusses the research team's use of low-power light to trigger stem cells inside the body to regenerate tissue.
