About the webinar
Regenerative medicine is on the cutting edge of both benchtop research and clinical practice.
 
As discoveries are made in the laboratory, clinical researchers work to translate new methods into everyday treatment of musculoskeletal disease in the equine athlete. Highlighting the three phases of basic science investigation, clinical application, and case examples and outcomes, this webinar will demonstrate how the equine surgeon can use regenerative medicine successfully.
 
What you'll learn
During this advanced webinar, ACVS Diplomates will present the most up-to-date information on scientific breakthroughs in how regenerative medicine can help treat disease caused by orthopedic injury and how discoveries made in the laboratory can be applied in a clinical setting.
 
Topics will include
  • practical application and the how, what, why, and when of regenerative medicine, with a focus on mesenchymal stem cell (MSC)-based therapies.
  • new discoveries, their applications on the horizon, and how they may shape the future of tailoring treatments to musculoskeletal disease. 
 
Designed for veterinary surgeons, surgery residents, and sports medicine specialists, Translating Research in Regenerative Medicine to Equine Clinical Practice will present actual case illustrations to enhance attendees’ learning of this advanced material.
