  • Topic Info:When our bodies have been injured or invaded by disease, they have shown us that they have an ability to attempt to heal whatever has been injured.  A number of organs have the intrinsic ability to regenerate, a distinctive feature that varies among organisms.

    Organ regeneration is a process not fully yet understood. However, when its underlying mechanisms are unraveled, it holds tremendous therapeutic potential for humans.

    In this segment, Dr Devin Eckhoff, Director, Division of Transplantation at UAB Medicine, discusses organ regeneration and the potential for this research to solve an ever-growing need for donor organs.
