Amie Goedeke received a fellowship to work on the derivation of canine induced pluripotent stem cells from the Morris Animal Foundation. These unique canine stem cells can be turned into neurons to help daschunds with spinal cord injury or mesenchymal cells for dogs with bone or cartilage defects or arthritis. This personalized medicine option gets around the whole issue of immune rejection leading to safe and efficacious therapies. Congratulations to Amie for a job well done!
