The therapeutic promise of regenerative medicine, as a way to restore aging or damaged tissues and organs, is one of the most exciting areas of medicines research. With the proportion of older people increasing, degenerative and chronic diseases are a major challenge. To move forward, the chemical sciences have a vital role to play in understanding
- disease mechanisms
- signalling of stem cells
- cellular differentiation
- new methodologies for surface modification
The 2013 Spinks Symposium will explore the critical issues that underpin developments in regenerative medicine and provide a clear understanding of the challenges involved in translating research outputs into application. Particular emphasis will be put on how medicinal chemistry/chemical biology research might provide a springboard to therapeutic development. Researchers from industry, academia and the wider health sciences sectors will join together for this stimulating workshop, including oral presentations discussion groups, flash presentations and a comprehensive poster session.
