Basic Cardiovascular Science Advances for 2010: The Future of Stem Cell Research

By Dr. Mark Sussman

The mission of our council is to improve understanding of mechanisms of basic cardiovascular regulation to support the development of new therapies and insights into clinical cardiovascular disease. Special emphasis is placed on integrating molecular/cellular and physiological approaches to address problems relating to functional genomics, cell signaling, myocardial biology, circulatory physiology, pathophysiology and peripheral vascular disease. The council plays a major role in linking basic science to clinical science and is concerned with advancing and applying knowledge derived from basic science to the patient.

Annually AHA asks all of its Councils and science groups what in their estimation have been the most important advances in their respective fields within the past year. We have pulled out of all of those suggestions the ones that came from or are relevant to our community. Several studies this year brought the future of medicine closer to the present with new insight into emerging technologies. These studies evaluate the role of stem cells in cardiac repair and their ability to differentiate into cardiac myocytes and the ability of the heart to replace and regenerate myocytes on its own. The findings from stem cell therapy have been shown to improve quality of life and survival in patients with chronic heart failure and support the development of future cell based therapeutics.

Dr. Mark Sussman is the Chair of the BCVS Council. He is the Distinguished Professor of Biology at the SD

THE NEWT IN US

Research on regeneration is a rapidly expanding field and increasingly attracts commercial interest, but therapeutic applications are clearly not around the next corner

Newts, hydras and planarians are the stars of this ‘circus of wonders’ and can replace, in an apparently effortless manner, missing or injured tails, limbs, jaws and heads.

The newt in us.

Frontiers of Science, From Microcosm to Macrocosm
