ⓘ Laboratory for Bioregenerative Medicine and Surgery

The Laboratory for Bioregenerative Medicine and Surgery is a leading regenerative medicine research laboratory within the Department of Surgery at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City. Under the leadership of its founder and director, Jason Spector, MD FACS, the LBMS has since its inception in 2006 focused its time and resources on the study of issues most directly relevant to reconstructive surgery. These involve pharmacologic means to reduce reperfusion injury, the use of therapeutic ultrasound for noninvasive venous ablation, and most notably, a novel approach for the creation of artificial tissues.

This approach includes manufacturing a three-dimensional construct that it contains microfibers and sacrifice, which are in direct continuity with inflow and outflow macrochannels. Subsequent dissolution of the sacrificial fibers results in a design containing a network of microchannels that is approaching that found in capillary beds. Most importantly, the inflow and outflow macrochannels have sufficient size to be amenable to microsurgical manipulation, and therefore, the design of clinical significance. This work was presented at the associated Press, National public radio, the discovery channel, and planet green.
