Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) are promising therapeutics for inflammatory diseases, metabolic bone disorders, and musculoskeletal regeneration; but challenges in identifying and expanding highly potent cells in heterogeneous populations have slowed clinical translation. Dr Mortensen’s research program develops advanced intravital imaging strategies to probe and produce highly potent mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) therapies for inflammation and bone disease and the study of regenerative processes.

Dr Mortensen is visiting as part of the UoL-University of Georgia (USA) Faculty Exchange Programme with Dr James Henstock (IACD). For more details of the scheme or to arrange to meet with the speaker please contact j.r.henstock@liverpool.ac.uk
