Professor Tom Waddell (Professor of Thoracic and Lung Transplant Surgery, University of Toronto, Canada) discusses the latest developments in stem cell research in relation to lung transplantation, and the potential developments in research over the next 10 years. 

This lecture was filmed at an event called: 'Regenerative medicine'.

RSM Event Description:

"At the start of the 21st century, the discovery that haematopoietic stem cells can acquire cell lineages different from the organ of origin has started a new and intriguing scientific revolution. If the goal of medicine has been to treat symptoms of disease and possibly remove their causes, scientists and doctors point now to a more ambitious target. The primary objective of regenerative medicine is the complete structural and functional recovery of the damaged organ. The regenerative capacity of organs is a property of particular significance in organisms with a long life span; in fact the preservation of the components of each tissue and their functional integration is essential for survival.

This meeting will discuss current understanding of the role that endogenous and exogenous progenitor cells may have in the treatment of failure of the heart and lungs and the prospects for rebuilding a severely injured airway. We have collected a group of speakers whose interests straddle both science and clinical surgery and who are international figures in their own right.

At the end of the meeting delegates should have a much clearer understanding of the underlying principles and the realistic prospects of regenerative medicine."
