Regenerative Medicine From the Lab to the Clinic How Close are we?

Workshop 25

Aims & Objectives

90 minutes
Neurourology: Basic Science
stem cell tissue engineering translational medicine
researches and clinicians interested in application of regenerative medicine to clinical practice

Tissue engineering and the stem cell field are rapidly advancing. There have been promising failures but also real progress. The aim of the course is to bring to the clinical researcher the current state of regenerative medicine with regards to urology. The conversion of tissue engineering , material science and cell transplantation have led to discoveries of potential solutions for dilemnas in urology such as organ replacement, stress incontinence and even coporeal rehabilitation. We will discuss the latest advances and exam how best to get them to the bedside or operating theatre.
