Description

There are early indicators that the coronavirus harms a patient’s lungs, which is why older patients have trouble recovering from the virus – they don’t have the regenerative stem cells which develop naturally in our bodies as children. How does stem cell therapy help patients with coronavirus and other serious diseases and injuries? What are the challenges in getting this treatment to patients who need it? Stem cell innovator Donna Chang joins us to explain how stem cells work, their potential to change medicine forever, and the regulatory hurdles which researchers like her go through to bring this treatment to patients.

Donna Chang is the Founder and CEO of Hope Biosciences, a biopharmaceutical company developing adult stem cell based therapeutics located in Sugar Land, Texas.
