Kidney disease, diabetes, cerebral palsy, genetic disorders. These are a few of the many afflictions that biomedical scientist and professor Mark Noble and his team at the University of Rochester Medical Center are most interested in navigating. But the navigation is just one part of the equation, another is making discoveries that could possibly alter the treatment of health conditions with no sufficient therapies. Noble’s work spans everything from stem cell biology and medicine to research on drug repurposing. And he says it’s all in an effort to make the world a better place. On this edition of Need to Know, Professor of Genetics, and Neurobiology and Anatomy at URMC and Director of the UR Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Institute, Mark Noble discusses more about his research, work and the future of stem cell medicine.
