What is Regenerative Medicine?

Regenerative medicine therapies, such as cell and gene therapies, hold promise for transforming medicine and creating options for patients living with difficult, rare, and often incurable diseases. The FDA plays a vital role in facilitating the development of regenerative medicine therapies, as well as in ensuring approved products are safe and effective for patients.

About the RegenMedEd Series

This webinar was part of an educational series, RegenMedEd: An FDA CBER OTP Series on Regenerative Medicine. The RegenMedEd series aims to bring together important stakeholders and FDA staff to discuss foundational information about regenerative medicine therapies, such as gene therapy and cell therapy products, and explore opportunities for patients, caregivers, and advocates to engage with FDA to help advance drug development.
