Testbed 1: MSCs - Mesenchymal Stem/stromal Cells (MSCs) to repair, regenerate,
and restore diseased tissues and organs

MSCs derived from bone marrow or umbilical cord can rapidly proliferate and have shown to differentiate to musculoskeletal lineages including bone and cartilage. MSCs also have immunomodulatory effects and are promising treatments for immune disorders such as Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Goal: Integrate processes and technologies to manufacture homogenous, potent, and safe populations of MSCs to target osteoarthritis, IBD, and musculoskeletal disorders
