As reported in the Miami Herald: “A new stem cell study conducted at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine has isolated a trigger in stem cells which could be the key to growing bone and combating conditions like osteoporosis and obesity. Published in March, the study is the culmination of years of work to define a specific biochemical switch that determines whether stem cells become bone or fat. The discovery, led by the Interdisciplinary Stem Cell Institute at UM, focused on specific types of stem cells, called mesenchymal stem cells, which are found in the bone marrow.” Call our office to learn about the work Dr. Bunyak is doing with mesenchymal stem cells in her clinic.
