 HerrenhausenLate #1: Stem cells = allrounder.
1 november 2016, 8.30p.m

What is regenerative medicine able to do? The dream of regenerative medicine is to make spare parts for the human body in the lab to save the lives of seriously ill people. This hope lies in the new allrounders of the cell world: induced pluripotent stem cells. They can already be used to produce blood cells that could one day make up for the shortfall in blood reserves. And that’s not all: stem cells harbour considerable potential for new treatments, creating a real opportunity for medical breakthroughs. Human biologist Nico Lachmann and medic Christine Happle are working together to develop just such a therapy for sufferers of a rare lung disease.The Volkswagen Foundation will be hosting an event, involving audience discussion, at which Lachmann and Happle will be looking at the possibilities and limits of stem cell research, the impact of these cells on medicine and why science fiction could soon become reality.
