Regenerative Medicine: the Past and the Future
Dr. Tracy Criswell, professor at the Wake Forest University Institute for Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM), will discuss the historical development of organ transplantation, regenerative medicine and tissue engineering. She will also provide an overview of the science being performed at WFIRM and its potential for changing modern medicine.
Regenerative medicine and tissue engineering techniques have the potential to revolutionize modern medicine. Regenerative medicine was born out of the desire to close the gap between patients on a waiting list for organ transplantation and the limited availability of donors. WFIRM is a leader in the field of tissue engineering and
regenerative medicine with more than 30 tissues being grown in the lab and several tissues on track for Phase 1 clinical trials.
