Grant awarded to U of M to regenerate Muscle Tissue using Stem Cells

In August, 2019 a DMD INSPIRE Major Grant was awarded to the University of Minnesota to support its pioneering work on regenerating muscle in Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy patients. Dr. Rita Perlingeiro, Professor of Medicine and member of the Stem Cell Institute, will lead this project that aims to produce and test stem cells to get the preclinical data required to progress to a clinical trial. Read more about the grant and a brief interview with Dr. Perlingeiro.
