After decades of frustratingly slow progress, regenerative medicine is buoyed by optimism.
After decades of controversy and frustratingly slow progress, the stem cell field seems poised for breakthroughs in a range of diseases. One by one, obstacles such as tumorigenicity of embryonic stem cells and immune rejection of allogeneic transplants are giving way to focused study and innovation.
At the “World Stem Cells Regenerative Medicine Congress”, the regenerative medicine community will meet to exchange the latest news and progress in cell therapy.
