Rejuveneering Old Cells, Tissues, and Organs
Rejuvenation of old cells by enhancing regeneration using synthetic biocircuits
Lessons From Immortal Organisms
The immortal planarian, Schmidtea mediterranea uses regeneration to maintain eternal youth. RSI actively investigates the molecular mechanisms that underlie these remarkable regenerative processes, including pluripotent adult stem cell function, pattern formation, and elimination of defective cells.
Roadmap for maximizing a healthy lifespan
RSI scientists conduct and track cutting-edge aging research. The impact of recent fundamental research on extending healthy life span is reviewed in "Medical Implications Of Basic Research In Aging".
RSI’s long-term strategy to develop and enhance the regenerative capacity of human beings to live healthier, disease-free lives and transform aging into a benign, beneficial process during which health and vigor are maintained. AMRITA is the logical next step for regenerative medicine– to engineer enhanced regeneration into human beings.
