Regenerative medicine, broadly defined, encompasses therapeutic interventions that replace, engineer or regenerate cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal physiology. Regenerative pharmacology is specifically focused on the biochemical stimulation of the body's own repair mechanisms to functionally heal previously irreparable tissues or organs. Integration of pharmacological approaches with the development of biomanufacturing, tissue/cell maturation and evaluation of tissue engineered constructs/products represent major opportunities for further expanding active areas of investigation. This symposium will explore the breadth of ways in which pharmacology is woven into the very fabric of regenerative medicine.
