Regenerative medicine focuses on regenerating the lost functions of organs as opposed to healing the body as quickly as possible with the use of machines and technology.

Essentially, he is working towards a technology that will help individuals re-build their own organs and tissue.
To demonstrate how this works, he shares the story of a man whose fingertip is currently rebuilding itself after an accident.
