Research page Sequencing of the human genome has brought tremendous advances to biomedical research and the coming molecular revolution in medicine will see greatly improved patient care and outcomes. While exciting, these new diagnostics and therapies are often costly and can place financial burden on even well resourced health care systems. On a global scale, with two thirds of the world living on less than $3/day, most people cannot expect to benefit from these technologies. Research in the Pardee lab is dedicated to extending the reach of today’s advanced health care and is pioneered technologies to tackle the challenge of health care accessibility.
Regenerative Medicine The emerging field of regenerative medicine holds the promise of providing radically new approaches for the treatment of disease. As a member of the University’s regenerative medicine program, Medicine by Design, our lab is dedicated to the development of new technologies in this space and we are doing so with an emphasis on addressing affordability. This includes engineering cell-based solutions and the application of our cell-free technologies to ensure that the envisioned benefits of regenerative medicine are within economic reach for more patients.
