Stem Cell Research

The cells in our body have many different functions and they “stem” from simpler cells that are not yet specified (do not have a specific function). These primal cells are called “stem cells” and are found in all multicellular organisms. They are the foundation cells for every organ, tissue and cell in the body. These cells can be harvested, grown and transformed into specialized cells of various tissues such as muscles, cartilage, or nerves through appropriate cell culture.  

 

Potential of Stem Cell (Pros of Stem Cell Research / Benefits of Stem Cell Research)

Stem cells have an enormous potential to benefit different areas of disease research and management. Medical researches anticipate being able to use technologies derived from stem cell research to treat a broad range of conditions including spinal cord injuries, burns, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases amongst others.

 

Stem Cell Therapy for Regenerative Medicine

At MIR we focus on “Stem Cell Therapy” for regenerative medicine. Regenerative medicine is medical intervention to create compatible cell lines that can replace cells and tissues damaged by injury, aging or disease.

 

Current Research at MIOT Institute of Research

MIR is harvesting human stem cells from adipose (Fat) tissues and bone marrow in vitro. We have already successfully harvested stem cells from adipose tissue (ADSCs) and bone marrow (BMSCs) and differentiated them with specific proteins.

 

Research with these cells is currently focused on certain heart diseases and bone disorders.

 

In a few months MIR has made rapid strides in stem cell research and aims to be in the forefront of medical breakthroughs in stem cell therapy in India.
