Please join us for a symposium on Opportunities, Challenges and Resources in Regenerative Medicine jointly sponsored by the School of Medicine at UNC and the NCSU Center for Comparative Medicine and Translational Research on Oct. 15 at the NC Biotechnology Center’s Hamner Center. For registration and schedule go to:
This symposium is one outcome of a joint UNC and NCSU task force on Regenerative Medicine and we hope that it will be a recurring event. The overall goal is to highlight ongoing and potential collaborations to address unanswered basic questions and unmet clinical needs in regenerative medicine across multiple organ systems, across mouse and large animal models and ultimately in the clinic. The goals of this symposium are to: http://www.med.unc.edu/regenerativemedicine
a) Bring together faculty, trainees and staff from UNC, NCSU and other institutions in the area that share research interests in stem cells and regenerative medicine.
b) Highlight areas of ongoing and potential collaborations across the two institutions as powerful approaches to build synergies and translate basic science findings to clinical application.
c) Introduce research interests of several new faculty hires in the area of regenerative medicine and stem cells
d) Highlight unique resources and emerging themes.
e) Address existing and needed resources or programs to accelerate research and progress in regenerative medicine.
There will be three oral sessions: (1) Bone, Cartilage and Regenerative Medicine, (2) Intestinal and Cardiac stem cells and Regenerative Medicine and (3) Resources, challenges and emerging themes; plus a poster session presenting abstracts and research on any aspect of Regenerative Medicine or Stem cells. The final event is a round table discussion on Avenues for Collaboration and Needed Resources.
Registration is free and provides entry to lunch at the Hamner Center. We encourage faculty and trainees to register, send an abstract for the poster session, and attend.
