Reopen and regenerate: Exosome-coated stent heals vascular injury, repairs damaged tissue

Researchers from NC State have developed an exosome-coated stent with a “smart-release” trigger that could both prevent reopened blood vessels from narrowing and deliver regenerative stem cell-derived therapy to blood-starved, or ischemic, tissue.

Pericardial injection effective, less invasive way to get regenerative therapies to heart

Injecting hydrogels containing stem cell or exosome therapeutics directly into the pericardial cavity could be a less invasive, less costly and more effective means of treating cardiac injury, according to new research from NC State and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Grad students make the college go

“NC State Engineering graduate students have a ‘can-do’ attitude that aligns perfectly with NC State’s Think and Do motto. They work on real problems, many supported by industry or research centers, consortia or laboratories,” said Richard Gould, interim associate dean of graduate programs. “Many can attend graduate school at any of the top schools in the country, but they chose NC State because of our excellence.”
