Regenerative Medicine to Take Spotlight at Baker Institute for Public Policy
Oct 16, 2014
Regenerative medicine is an exciting new field emerging in the biomedical world. It has been a subject of great interest at world-renowned institutions and research facilities around the globe, and it is set to be a topic of focus at the upcoming Rice University Baker Institute for Public Policy event on Oct. 21, 2014 in Houston, Texas.
According to Rice University News & Media, the event will feature a presentation by Dr. Deepak Srivastava, a lead expert in biomedical research and a non-resident scholar and senior investigator at the Gladstone Institute of Cardiovascular Disease. His presentation, named "Stem Cells, Regenerative Medicine and Policy Impediments to the New Future," will discuss the possible uses for regenerative medicine and how it could be a game changer in the health care field. Along with its ability to heal damaged tissue in the knee, spine and other parts of the skeletal system, the technology could be used in applications to treat everything from diabetes to blindness to heart disease.
Srivastava will also talk about the policy issues that have led to problems obtaining funding from state and federal bodies as well as the economic pressure under which the technology is burdened. Following the presentation, Srivastava will talk about investment opportunities and open the floor to questions and comments from participants.
It's an excellent opportunity for those interested in investing in regenerative medicine to learn more about the positive role it can have in health care as well as the potential for returns. And in the larger scheme of things, events such as this one are laying the foundation for further discussions, growth in the field and future research and development of regenerative medicine.
