Sheyn Lab

I have devoted more than 15 years to the research of gene and stem cell therapies. This field holds great therapeutic potential. In my postdoctoral work, I developed an efficient and easily reproducible method to modify stem cells and to regenerate bone defects. The cell therapy approach was tested and found biomechanically valid and new bone tissue was comparable to the native bone."

"My back hurts, Doc," is one of the most common complaints heard by family doctors. Effectively treating low back pain, caused mostly by degeneration of the intervertebral disc, poses a huge medical challenge. Unfortunately, no cure for disc degeneration has been found. The Sheyn Laboratory is working to develop new therapies that will benefit patients by improving their quality of life, as well as reducing medical costs and the number of missed workdays.
