Thomas Rando, M.D., Ph.D., professor of neurology and neurological sciences at Stanford University School of Medicine and director of Stanford’s Glenn Laboratories for the Biology of Aging, has focused his entire career researching muscular dystrophy. The main areas of interest of the Rando Laboratory are muscle stem cell biology, muscle stem cell aging, muscular dystrophies, tissue engineering […]

BY BRUCE GOLDMAN Stanford University School of Medicine scientists have created a mouse model of muscular dystrophy in which degenerating muscle tissue gives off visible light. The observed luminescence occurs only in damaged muscle tissue and in direct proportion to cumulative damage sustained in that tissue, permitting precise monitoring of the disease’s progress in the mice, […]
NIH Director’s Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series: The Annual Florence Mahoney Lecture Aging is a process that is generally viewed as unidirectional, relentless, and inevitable. However, in addition to the existence of non-aging species, or at least species with negligible senescence, data from a wide range of living organisms suggests that environmental influences can markedly slow […]
Regenerative Medicine Today welcomes Thomas Rando, MD, PhD. Dr. Rando discusses his research in muscle stem cell biology as well as his role in the upcoming Regenerative Rehabilitation Symposium in Pittsburgh.
No one likes to develop arthritis and more wrinkles. However, it’s a fact of life that we all grow old, and always will…Or is it? Cutting-edge studies indicating that old cells and tissues can be “rejuvenated” prompt us to question the timeless theory that aging is unavoidable. Dr. Rando was an invited speaker at the […]
