Regenerative Medicine

Regenerative medicine, the approach that seeks to replace or regenerate human cells, tissues or organs, to restore or establish normal function, is not a new discipline. Decades of RCUK-funded research has led to successes in the fields of tissue engineering, gene therapy, stem cell biology and bio-materials that have already had a huge impact on healthcare and society, but which also offer fundamental potential in areas of unmet medical need, such as heart and neurological diseases, and economic benefits for the UK.
