The hunt for regenerative medicines
Wednesday, June 29
1:00 p.m. PT/4:00 p.m. ET
Our bodies have the ability to regenerate tissues damaged by disease or injury, but that capability is limited. In his Front Row lecture, Scripps Research assistant professor Michael Bollong will share how his lab is using high-throughput technologies and large-scale chemistry techniques to search for medicines to accelerate the body’s natural healing powers. This research is paving the way to new therapies for diseases ranging from heart disease to burns to inflammatory bowel diseases.
