· A new study conducted on neonatal mice carried out by the Center for Regenerative Medicine in Barcelona (CMR[B]), in collaboration with the Institute of Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC) and the University of Barcelona (UB), with the participation of the research group of Dr Daniel Navajas, states that the ability of the heart to regenerate after a wound is related to the stiffness of the cellular environment, rather than to the proliferative capacity of the cardiac cells, narrowing the window of regeneration to forty-eight hours after birth. The study, published in Science Advances, paves the way for the development of therapies based on the pharmacological modification of the extracellular matrix to promote tissue regeneration after myocardial infarction.
