Bone stem cell breakthrough

7 May 2015

Bone stem cells - Dan WorthleySouth Australian gastroenterologist, cancer research fellow and 2009 NHMRC/RG Menzies Fellow, Dr Daniel Worthley, is making his mark in stem cell research. 

Potential treatments to prevent osteoarthritis and osteoporosis and treat cancer could result from research conducted by Dr Worthley and his colleagues at Columbia University Medical Centre.

Published recently in one of the world’s leading science journals, Cell, the research found that bone stem cells regenerate both bone and cartilage in adult mice. Researchers also discovered that osteochondroreticular (OCR) stem cells contributed to bone repair when they were transplanted to a fracture site.

David’s leap into the unknown perhaps reflects some of our adventurous and tenacious scholars who are featured in the Menzies Foundation Annual Report 2014.
