Limb Regeneration in Humans: New Research Challenges Long-Held Beliefs

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

Ken Muneoka has a history of shaking up the field of regeneration; for instance, in a 2019 groundbreaking article published in Nature, the Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVMBS) professor proved the possibility of joint regeneration in mammals for the first time.

His team is already questioning further long-held notions about the underlying science of the subject, this time in relation to how mammals might regenerate damaged parts of the body.

Only some organs, like the liver, and certain tissues, like the epidermis, the top layer of skin, can naturally regenerate in humans.
