On-Demand Webinar – Isolation and Culture of Primary Cells from Bone Marrow
This webinar gives a great basic overview of bone marrow mesenchymal stem/stromal cells, including their origin, nomenclature, identity, and therapeutic use.
Within the realm of regenerative medicine bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BM-MSCs) have shown promise in cutaneous wound and joint repair. Mesenchymal stem/stromal cells from bone marrow are thought to assist in wound healing through the secretion of factors that encourage tissue growth, cell migration, and angiogenesis. Continued progress for BM-MSCs in wound healing and regenerative medicine requires a better understanding of the mechanisms, both direct and paracrine, utilized by these cells to facilitate repair. In addition, a clear consensus is needed surrounding the methods and markers that the field is using to define mesenchymal stem cells and characterize their functional capacity.
Bio-Techne, in association with Bitesize Bio, recruited Dr. Peter Maye from the University of Connecticut Health Center to present a webinar discussing the field of mesenchymal stem cells. This webinar gives a great basic overview of bone marrow mesenchymal stem/stromal cells, including their origin, nomenclature, and identity. He also discusses methods for isolating and characterizing the cells.
