We are developing several gene delivery and stem cell delivery systems
Welcome to the Figueiredo Lab!
Immunotherapy • Bone Metastatic Tumors • Musculoskeletal Repair
The primary goals of the lab are to understand the interactions between the skeletal and immune systems and apply this understanding to developing novel therapeutic applications. We focus on integrating biological mechanisms with development of strategies that can leverage the immune system to simultaneously promote restoration of bone and alter immune responses to control inflammation or cell viability. Our therapeutic modalities build on multifunctional osteo-immune cytokines, which can be targeted to bone or inflammatory cells in order to exert regenerative effects.
