  • Dr. Davis Awarded R01 “Peg Hydrogels for Progenitor Cell Delivery”

    January 30, 2018

    Cardiovascular disease is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide and effective diagnostic and treatment options are greatly needed. Cell therapy trials show promise, but still require new strategies to improve efficacy. We propose that delivery of cells within a modular, biodegradable hydrogel with cardiac ligands will improve transplanted cell therapy efficacy leading to improved function.
