Top Grants Help Sanford Research Draw Undergrad Interns
Sanford Research has secured funding that will continue to provide unique hands-on research experiences for undergraduate students. These programs are integral in preparing students for graduate school and a career in research.
$12M Grant Focuses on Kids’ Health
The initial $12 million Center of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) grant helped to establish and develop the Center for Pediatric Research, a research group focused on childhood diseases. The renewal provides another five years of support, and the team will further develop the center with a focus on how stem cells contribute to pediatric diseases.
FDA-Approved Stem Cell Clinical Trials
In 2017, Sanford Health launched a first of its kind trial in the United States using a person’s own fat-derived adult stem cells to treat shoulder injuries. Stem cells, also called regenerative medicine, are changing the way patients experience healing.
Sanford Research is home to four research centers. Each multidisciplinary center is defined by complementary scientific and technical expertise along with supporting resources to advance a thematic research goal. Thematic goals encompass: studying of complex behaviors and biological factors, improving the health of patients and communities using unique data-driven techniques, translating basic discoveries into clinical trials for humans, and enhancing children’s health research.
