Stem cells enhanced by new biomaterial

A new biomaterial that enhances the ability of stem cells to regenerate into nerves and body parts has been developed by Australian and British scientists.

The work was a result of a joint study undertaken by the researchers at the Melbourne-based Monash University and UK-based University of Warwick.

Other biomedical “scaffold” materials, which act as templates for tissue regeneration, already exist but they cannot communicate effectively with the cells they are trying to influence.

The researchers have created a more advanced material that targets specific cells and provides clear signals to these cells to enhance regeneration.

Stroke-damaged brains could be repaired within 5-10 years using adult stem cells from teeth, according to one of Australia’s leading stroke physicians who is pioneering new research in this field.

Associate Professor Simon Koblar from the University of Adelaide and The Queen Elizabeth Hospital is leading a research project that shows dental pulp stem cells extracted from teeth may prove far more beneficial for brain repair than other types of stem cells.

His research involving adult stem cells is the first of its kind in Australia and will be explained at a free public lecture at the University of
