The Forum on Regenerative Medicine will host a two-day workshop to explore potential promising approaches to modulate the immune system and/or the regenerative medicine product for improving the clinical outcomes of tissue repair and regeneration in patients. Discussions at the workshop may explore the current state of knowledge about immune tolerance mechanisms and lessons learned from other areas of research; advances in engineering of allogeneic donor cells for acceptance by the host’s immune system; effects of aging and other factors on the local environment, endogenous repair, and wound healing; modulating the host immune system to create a pro-regenerative environment; and developing tools and preclinical models for monitoring and optimizing the host’s pro-regenerative environment.
