What is regenerative medicine, how can it change healthcare and what type of innovation & business opportunities does it provide?

By definition, regenerative medicine is the branch of medicine that develops methods to regrow, repair or replace damaged or diseased cells, organs or tissues. Regenerative medicine includes the generation and use of therapeutic stem cells, tissue engineering and the production of artificial organs.
