Regenerative medicine is a topic in health that gathers different methods to regrow, repair or replace damaged or diseased cells, organs or tissues. Regenerative medicine includes tissue engineering, the production of artificial organs and the generation and use of therapeutic stem cells. Stem Cell Therapy is gaining more and more power among other options of regenerative medicine since Stem Cells are cells that have the ability to convert into other types of human cells, these types of cells are found naturally in the human body, and it is their job to repair any damaged tissue.
Mexico has been really involved in Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Therapy for the last century, now there are multiple institutions that support their research. Such as Colegio Mexicano de Células Madres y Medicina Regenerativa A.C. (Mexican College of Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine) is an institution that was founded on February 18th of 2008 and since the beginning they have been offering multiple courses and congress with recognition of different Universities with the help of the Secretary of Education, the Secretary of Labor, Federación de Colegios y Asociaciones de Profesionistas (College Federation and Professional Association) and other Health Universities in the Baja California state. The courses and congress provided by the CMCMR are focused on updating knowledge and techniques for the different members of such institution.
They have done multiple specialized courses in which they have main topics to focus on like Metabolic Diseases, Immune Diseases, Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Therapy.
This year, the 6th specialized course is taking place this upcoming May 29th and May 30th, it will be an online course with the topics being Orthopedics, Traumatology and Neurology.
Each topic has a breakdown of conferences that are presented by doctors who have experience in the research and practice of regenerative medicine and stem cells. The Head-Doctors from the Medical Committee at ProgenCell Stem Cell Therapies have been chosen to participate as guest speakers because of their experience in the field.
