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.

Providing a state-of-the-art review of various aspects of regenerative medicine, the course has been designed for a variety of professions including

  • Clinicians
  • Researchers
