Regenerative Medicine: What Do We Know and Where Are We Going?

Imagine if damaged heart tissue could regenerate. Imagine the lives that could be saved or improved through restored heart function. Now imagine if regenerative therapies were available to restore any lost, damaged, or aging cells and tissues in the human body.

What was once a dream is becoming reality. Regenerative Medicine is the beginning of a new era that will allow physicians to harness the body’s normal repair mechanism in stem cells to address the root cause of the condition or injury instead of just managing the symptoms.

Join us for a thought-provoking discussion on what has been learned in the field of cardiovascular medicine over the last decade and the potential for stem cells and gene therapy to reduce, and ultimately harness, the impact of heart disease and many other conditions.
