Regenerative Medicine Today

The McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine presents Regenerative Medicine Today, an audio podcast series that features interviews with scientists, clinicians, and patients. The series addresses emerging science and new therapies, where the primary strategy is to repair/replace tissue or organs that have been damaged by disease, trauma, or congenital issues vs. the classical approach that is used today to treat the symptoms of the insult to the body.
