COMSTECH Lecture series on Emerging technologies; Lecture number 3 “Preclinical studies to treat degenerative diseases using stem cell therapy.”
G. Rasul Chaudhry, PhD, Professor
Date: December 10th, 2021
Time: 3:00 PM Pakistan time
Our Program: COMSTECH is organizing a lecture series on “Emerging Technologies for Science and Technology”. This series is an effort to help upcoming scientists in identifying key areas of scientific research, which will contribute immensely in the well-being of the humankind. These lectures will be delivered by prominent figures in the world of science. Areas like Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Stem cell research, Nanotechnology and Modern Agriculture are part of this lecture series.
Speakers profile: Dr. G. Rasul Chaudhry is a professor of molecular biology, Department of Biological Sciences, and co-director of Oakland University Beaumont Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine (OU-WB ISCRM) Oakland University, Rochester, Michigan. His research focuses on stem cell and regenerative medicine. He is specifically interested in the regulation of stemness and differentiation of stem cells and stem cell-based biologics for tissue engineering and therapies for degenerative diseases.
Abstract: Many degenerative diseases are related to aging or genetic. Others are caused by environmental stresses, exposure to viruses, poisons, or other chemicals. Treatment with drug therapy is possible only in some cases. However, the drugs to treat degenerative diseases have severe side effects. The drug treatments only provide temporary relief and do not regenerate damaged cells and tissues. Our group has investigated stem cell-based approaches to develop therapies for degenerative diseases that do not cure. I’ll present some of our recent studies on developing cell therapies using animal models of degenerative diseases such as DDD, MS, and RDD.
Target Audience: This webinar is open to academics, scientists and the general public from all OIC member states.
