Regenerating the Damaged Heart with Sanjay Sinha
Show Notes

The heart is notoriously bad at regenerating following damage to the myocardium. On the horizon are cell therapies that could restore cardiac function following damage.

In this episode, Dr Sanjay Sinha, a British Heart Foundation Senior Research Fellow, and a consultant cardiologist at Addenbrooke’s hospital,  joins us discuss a stem cell derived cardiac ‘patch’, which could be transplanted into patients for heart repair after myocardial infarction. The potential of cardiac cells derived from iPSCs for personalised approached to treatment, and for modeling disease, are also discussed.
