“Reversing Disease: The Curative Potential of Stem Cell Therapeutics”
For the first time in human history, there are more people over the age of 65 than those under the age of 5. This aging of the population world-wide is placing incredible strain on the health care delivery system and is a threat to the economic stability of every country. The vast majority of medical therapeutics offer treatment, not cure. There is great hope that our increasing understanding of stem cell biology will result in achieving tissue regeneration/repair for a variety of illnesses. However, currently, there is a great deal of misinformation about the types of stem cells and the uses of such cells in human disease. This presentation will provide a medical and scientific framework that will enable every attendee to separate the fact from the fiction - the reality from the hype -, in the present and future applications of stem cell-based therapeutics.
