This month’s theme: Thinking Ahead: Our Regenerative Future
Stem cells hold the potential to cure a wide range of diseases and researchers have dreamed of using them to repair damaged tissue, fight neurological problems and even create new organs. But such medical uses have attracted controversy and proven tricky both in the lab and with regulatory agencies. Join LaunchBio this month to explore a new decade of opportunities with regenerative medicine.
Panel: Promise & Possibility: Current State of Stem Cell Medicine
The global regenerative medicine market is expected to reach $5.6 billion by 2025. Due to its wide range of applications regenerative medicine will continue to gain traction both within research institutions and with investors looking to ride the wave. But what can we expect in the next 10-years? What areas hold the most promise and who is receiving the funding? Join this panel of experts to explore the promise and possibilities of our regenerative future.
