Regenerative Medicine Today #51

Regenerative Medicine Today welcomes Jörg C. Gerlach, MD, PhD.  Dr. Gerlach is Professor of Surgery at the University of Pittsburgh. Prior to his current appointment Dr. Gerlach founded the Charité Institute for Transplantation and Organ Regeneration (CITO) at the Charité Medical Faculty of the Humboldt University Berlin, Germany. His specialties lie in surgery, hepatology, intensive care and experimental transplantation medicine. Additionally, he has an engineering background with expertise in artificial organ development, hybrid system research and preclinical trial efforts.

Dr. Gerlach discusses his work on the development of tools such as bioreactors for the expansion of cells so that sufficient cells are available for cell-based therapies. Areas of focus include the pancreas and liver. He also explores the development of “cell factories” for the production of cells from a patient’s bone marrow. Another of Dr. Gerlach’s interests is cell-based burn therapy, which is described on the interview.
