A UC Davis professor working on stem cell-based approaches for treating critical limb ischemia is speaking at Sacramento State this week. Ischemic vascular diseases is one of the leading causes of mortality among elderly Americans. Prof. Eduardo Silva will present “The Journey of Stem Cells: Material-based systems for engineering new vascular networks” as part of the Sacramento State STEM Regenerative Medicine Lecture Series Tuesday, Nov. 24. We’ll talk with Prof. Silva about his work and why there has been such poor correlation between animal studies and clinical trials to date.
