Regenerative Medicine has raised expectations for revolutionizing the treatment of many serious diseases for which current therapies are inadequate or simply inexistent. However, its incorporation into clinical practice has progressed much more slowly than predicted. In this session, we’ll review some recent successful examples and approaches in Regenerative Medicine. We will also focus on and discuss potential pitfalls and strategies to mitigate them from the perspective of biotech/pharma companies. The influence of the different regulatory landscapes and the role of stakeholders will also be addressed.
