“How,” crooned British pop band the Bee Gees to their fans in the 1970s, “can you mend a broken heart?” Well, those working in the field of regenerative medicine may have an answer. Focused on discovering ways to replace or regenerate organ tissues that are damaged from aging or disease, the field envisions a future where those with spinal cord injuries can walk again, where entire organs can be regenerated for transplants and, of course, where broken hearts can be healed or replaced.
