The fifth in a series created by Marc Hodosh and Richard Saul Wurman, TEDMED celebrates conversations that demonstrate the intersection and connections between all things medical and healthcare related: from personal health to public health, devices to design and Hollywood to the hospital. Together, this encompasses more than twenty percent of America's GNP while touching everyone's life around the globe. TEDMED 2009 will take place October 27-30 in San Diego, Calif.

About Regenerative Medicine

A new frontier in healthcare, regenerative medicine utilizes living human cells to repair or replace body tissue damaged by injury, disease or even the natural aging process. Regenerative medicine is a multidisciplinary field which brings together biology, medicine, and engineering to empower scientists to grow living cells, tissues and organs in the laboratory, and to safely implant them into the human body for the purposes of healing.
