Dr. Griesemer’s laboratory is investigating the ability of ex-vivo expanded Tregs to enhance bone marrow engraftment and extend the duration of mixed chimerism. The induction of durable mixed chimerism without graft-versus-host disease should in turn lead to life-long donor-specific tolerance to any co-transplanted cells (islets) or solid organs (heart, liver, lung) from the donor. They’re also collaborating with other investigators at the CCTI to study the ability of amnion-derived multipotent progenitor cells to enhance bone marrow engraftment in translational models as an alternate, and potentially synergistic, strategy to induce durable mixed chimerism.
