Stem cell breakthrough to promote wound healing in diabetic foot ulcers

Camille Bienvenu, diabetes.co.uk, June 30, 2016

"A joint team of researchers from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and Sackler School of Graduate Biomedical Sciences in Boston have found a new non-invasive way to treat patients with diabetes suffering from advanced ulcerations of their foot."

Non-healing tissue from diabetic foot ulcers reprogrammed as pluripotent stem cells

Science Daily, June 28, 2016

"Researchers at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and the Sackler School of Graduate Biomedical Sciences at Tufts, led by Jonathan Garlick, have established for the first time that skin cells from diabetic foot ulcers can be reprogrammed to acquire properties of embryonic-like cells. These induced pluripotent stem cells might someday be used to treat chronic wounds."

Tufts professor turns to rap to reach students

David Filipov, The Boston Globe, February 3, 2013

"MEDFORD — One moment, Jonathan Garlick is doing something you might expect of a scholarly looking researcher, leading Tufts University freshmen through a discussion of the complicated scientific, ethical, and political questions surrounding stem cell research.​ 

 

The next moment, Garlick does perhaps the last thing you would expect of a mild-mannered, 60-year-old scientist and college professor: He cranks up a karaoke machine, dons a baseball cap (tilted to the side), and becomes the Stem Cell Rapper."

New evidence that chronic ulcerative stomatitis is an autoimmune disease

Science Daily, April 14, 2011

"In a study investigating the cause of a little-understood condition called chronic ulcerative stomatitis (CUS), researchers have provided evidence that an autoimmune response contributes to the painful oral disease, supporting the classification of CUS as an autoimmune disease."
