University of Wisconsin
Madison, WI Dr. Geoffrey Baer

The National Stem Cell Foundation is partnering with the Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation (OREF) to support the work of Dr. Geoffrey Baer at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Ligament and tendon injuries are extremely common clinical problems that often result in scar formation and incomplete recovery. Dr. Baer and his team are working with mesenchymal stem cells (MSC’s) and gene delivery strategies to develop novel therapies for better clinical outcomes.
