"Can Stem Cells Rescue Failing Hearts?"
Stem cell therapies to repair or regenerate tissue or blood vessels could provide a revolutionary approach to helping patients with cardiovascular disease. To accelerate the advancement of stem cell biology from bench to bedside for treatment of cardiovascular disease, NHLBI and the Foundation for NIH hosted the scientific symposium Cardiovascular Regenerative Medicine. The goal of the symposium was to stimulate discussion about tissue specification in stem cell biology and cardiovascular development, and identify areas of opportunity for applying regenerative therapies to cardiovascular disease.
