What Is Regenerative Medicine?

Regenerative medicine includes gene therapies, cell therapies, and tissue-engineered products intended to augment, repair, replace, or regenerate organs, tissues, cells, genes, and metabolic processes in the body.

Regenerative medicine aims to alter the current practice of medicine by treating the root causes of disease and disorders.

The regenerative medicine and advanced therapies sector is creating transformative, durable treatments and potential cures for some of humankind’s most devastating diseases – many currently untreatable via conventional treatments – through the use of ground-breaking scientific discoveries and technologies.
