We've developed a booklet to help explain what ARMI does, and our future plans towards treatments - see 'Resources' on the right hand side of this page.
Regenerative medicine has been hailed as the next evolution of medical treatments.
"Throughout life, our human bodies are vulnerable to disease, injury and, in some cases, congenital conditions that impair or shorten life. With Australia’s ageing population, health issues such as heart disease, stroke and Alzheimer’s are on the rise. To tackle these challenges, the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute (ARMI) is focused on regaining the body’s remarkable regenerative capacity of damaged tissues and organs that all people have before birth. Investigating how the body repairs, replaces, restores or regenerates damaged tissues and organs could hold the key to help unlock the body’s own potential to heal and regenerate back to optimal health from an injury or disease."
