Join us for in-depth conversations with researchers and physicians on discoveries and emerging science in precision medicince. Each episode features lively discussion between a Mayo Clinic colleague and guest from an external instution. Season one features episodes on the exposome, population genomics, rapid genome sequencing, individualized vaccines, gene editing and more.
Xenotransplantation and Regenerative Medicine
What if we could replace diseased or damaged organs and other body parts with new lab-created versions? How might transplanting tissue from other species help the critical shortage of human transplant organs? Tune in to listen to two noted experts in regenerative therapeutics and xenotransplantation (transplanting organs between members of different species). Learn more from these experts as they discuss innovations, future opportunities, challenges, ethical and legal issues, and the public’s perception of these new therapies.
