Steven Stice, GRA Eminent Scholar of Regenerative Medicine at the University of Georgia and a researcher with the Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience at Georgia Tech, believes one solution to combat the cost of chronic disease is to produce cell-based therapies in much larger quantities and more consistent quality.

And he isn’t alone.
