The McDevitt lab is focused on the engineering of innovative technologies to translate the morphogenic potential of stem cells as models of development and disease, as well to develop cellular and molecular therapies aimed to treat degenerative diseases and traumatic injuries. Learn more about the research.

Our technologies are applicable to a wide variety of diseases, including cardiovascular, orthopedic and neurological disorders. Specific diseases that we can apply our research to include treatments for diabetes, chronic wounds, and autoimmune disorders. The McDevitt lab's work also has other applications, including wound healing, irritable bowel syndrome, epilepsy and bone regeneration.  Learn more about specific applications.
