Modern medicine can treat severe injuries like never before, but even with today’s technology, there are limits to the healing of tissue in wounded adults. In an optimistic glimpse into the future, Dr. George Christ introduces the growing concept of regenerative medicine, and its role in the healing of veterans and civilians.
Dr. George Christ is a Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Virginia. He is also the Director of Basic and Translational Research in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the UVA Medical School. He is also a co-inventor of more than 26 patents related to gene therapy for the treatment of human smooth muscle disorders and tissue engineering technologies.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
