Shira Landau, Zuckerman-CHE Outstanding Israeli Female Postdoctoral Scholar, part of Prof. Shulamit Levenberg’s bioengineering team at the Technion, introduce stem-cell tissue regeneration technology to rebuild bone with fewer complications.

Using stem cells derived from dental pulp (the soft tissue inside the tooth), along with capillary-forming endothelial cells, they generated blood vessels for enhanced tissue remodeling and repair.

Working with Prof. Gordana Vunjak-Novakovic of Columbia University, Levenberg’s team took the concept of implantable bone tissue to a new level – reducing the need to harvest soft tissue and blood vessels to support organ reconstruction.

The study was published in the journal Advanced Functional Materials.
