LSU Health Shreveport and La Tech Announce Collaboration



LifeShare Blood Center was invited to speak at the CTERM Conference held on Wednesday, July 10. The Center for Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine (CTERM) is a partnership between LSU Health Shreveport and Louisiana Tech University. LifeShare will play a vital role in helping bring the vision to life.
CTERM will focus on the development of cell-based and tissue-engineering therapies to combat tissue inflammation, damage, and loss associated with complications of metabolic syndrome or trauma injury. Specifically, the goal of CTERM is to produce clinically relevant stem cells and biomaterial scaffolds to generate useful cell- and tissue-based therapies that can combat the loss of healthy tissue associated with chronic diseases.
