Abstract / Description of output

Regenerative medicine occupies a unique position in research and translation, drawing on the disparate but overlapping fields of developmental biology, cell biology, genetics, epigenetics, inflammation and of course stem cell biology. Key attributes of each of these fields are critical when organortissue restitution occurs with repair that restores a normal architecture and replacement of the component cell types that maintain structure and specific function. Nowhere is this more important or arguably better exemplified than in liver disease.
