C

Statement of Task

An ad hoc committee will plan and conduct a 1-day public workshop to examine and discuss the state of the science in the field of regenerative medicine. The goal of the workshop will be to begin with an overview to set the foundation for the field, then to focus in on opportunities and challenges for future work in regenerative medicine, concentrating on understanding the underlying biology of potentially promising cellular therapies. Gathering this information will also help facilitate future forum discussions around the issues of implementing regenerative medicine therapies and technologies, such as developing standards, examining regulatory pathways, addressing reimbursement issues, and considering bioethical matters. Discussions during this workshop will be held with a broad array of invited stakeholders, which may include research scientists, clinicians, patients, payers, regulators, and representatives from pharmaceutical and biotech companies. The planning committee will develop the workshop agenda, select and invite speakers, and moderate the discussions. Proceedings from the workshop will be prepared by a designated rapporteur in accordance with institutional policies and procedures.

Regenerative medicine holds the potential to create living, functional cells and tissues that can be used to repair or replace those that have suffered potentially irreparable damage due to disease, age, traumatic injury, or genetic and congenital defects. The field of regenerative medicine is broad and includes research and development components of gene and cell therapies, tissue engineering, and non-biologic constructs. Although regenerative medicine has the potential to improve health and deliver economic benefits, this relatively new field faces challenges to developing policies and procedures to support the development of novel therapies are both safe and effective.

In October 2016, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine hosted a public workshop with the goal of developing a broad understanding of the opportunities and challenges associated with regenerative medicine cellular therapies and related technologies. Participants explored the state of the science of cell-based regenerative therapies within the larger context of patient care and policy. This publication summarizes the presentations and discussions from the workshop.
