Overview: Regenerative medicine is a rapidly developing field at the
forefront of new medical therapies and treatments. It seeks to find new ways of
boosting the body’s ability to heal itself through the repairing, replacement
and regeneration of cells, tissues and organs in order to restore impaired
biological functioning lost to disease, trauma, congenital abnormalities or age.
It has the potential to significantly transform routine clinical care in the
treatment of disease and injury. This webinar recording offers an overview
of regenerative medicine, its potential impact on clinical medicine, and some of
the ethical issues that we already need to be considering.
Presenters: Rev. Kevin T. FitzGerald, SJ, Associate Professor; and David
Lauler, Chair for Catholic Health Care Ethics, Center for Clinical Bioethics,
Georgetown University Medical Center, Washington, DC
