|Sustained local delivery of pharmacological agents via nanoengineered films to improve healing of craniofacial fractures: comparative pre-clinical evaluation of BMP and deferoxamine in prevalent high-risk injuries|
NIH NIDCR C-Doctor Jan 21, 2019 - Dec 30, 2019
Description: The goal of this project was to develop a drug device combination for delivery of pharmacological agents to healing craniofacial bones to improve healing and minimize complications.
Pomerantz developed the clinical need concept and oversaw the experimental work to deliver the devices to mandible fracture sites in animal models.
|Bioinspired hydrogels for craniofacial muscle regeneration|
NIH NIDCR C-Doctor Jan 20, 2019 - Apr 30, 2023
Description: The goal of this project is to develop applications of hydrogels for inducing muscle regeneration in volumetric muscle defects in craniofacial muscles and to translate these applications to clinical use.
Pomerantz is overseeing experiments involving implantation of bioinspired hydrogels into experimentally created volumetric muscle defects in rat craniofacial muscles, and is leading the identification of potential clinical targets for the team.
|Regeneration and Differentiation Potential of Heterogeneous Human Satellite Cells|
NIH R01 AR072638-01Sep 21, 2017 - Aug 31, 2023
Description: This proposal will investigate transcriptional signatures of individual human satellite cells. The experiments will test the hypothesis that human satellite cells express heterogeneous transcriptional signatures and functions, and that heterogeneity changes during regeneration and aging. The work will advance our understanding of endogenous human muscle stem
