Regenerative Medicine Essentials Course

About The Course

Often referred to as the next evolution of modern health care, regenerative medicine touches many disciplines – from clinical care and engineering to basic science and bioethics. The course covers nine major themes combining lectures, demonstrations and tours. We will also include three 1/2 day hands-on workshops focused on 3D Printing Technologies; Organoid/Body-on-a-Chip Engineering (with microfluidics, hydrogels, ECM and cell components); and an Intro to Translation workshop incorporating cGMP/GTP cell processing. Throughout the one-week course, taught by prominent experts, attendees gain a foundation in this exciting field. From the science behind groundbreaking discoveries to regulatory and manufacturing challenges, the course provides a comprehensive look at progress to date as well as future applications.

Objectives

The primary objective of the RME course is to provide a state-of-the-art review of various aspects of regenerative medicine including background material, the key scientific components of the field of regenerative medicine, ethical, economic and other issues important to regenerative medicine as well as an opportunity to network and meet leading professionals in the field. The course integrates information, technologies and skills from biological sciences, engineering, legal, commercial, regulatory and ethical disciplines. Sessions address the science behind regenerative medicine, its application to human disease and its importance to modern society. At the end of the course, participants will have received an enhanced foundation in the rules, regulations and ethics in the regenerative medicine environment, routines for first-in-man clinical trials, the practical and theoretical basis for GMP, and the ethical aspects of translational research.
