Regenerative Medicine

Speaker: Bryan Brown, PhD • Online with Zoom

This lecture is an overview and update on regenerative medicine. Regenerative medicine provides the potential to repair or replace diseased or damaged tissues and organs in contrast with the current approach of treating the symptoms when the body is adversely affected by trauma, disease, or congenital deformities. Scientists and clinicians are evaluating various therapies such as engineered organs, advanced materials, and using a patient’s own cells to help repair a disease or defect in the body. Advances are being made in the laboratory and in the translation of these novel therapies into clinical treatments.

Bryan Brown, PhD is the Roberta Luxbacher Faculty Fellow and an associate professor in the Department of Bioengineering and the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Science at the University of Pittsburgh. Additionally, he is the Director of Educational Outreach for the McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine.
