Regenerative Rehabilitation: Applied Biophysics Meets Stem Cell Therapeutics

Cell Stem Cell. 2018 Mar 1;22(3):306-309. doi: 10.1016/j.stem.2018.02.003.


The emerging field of regenerative rehabilitation integrates biological and bioengineering advances in regenerative medicine with rehabilitative sciences. Here we highlight recent stem cell-based examples of the regenerative rehabilitation paradigm to promote tissue repair and regeneration, and we discuss remaining challenges and future directions for the field.
