The Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine works closely with our surrounding Winston-Salem and Piedmont Triad communities to foster economic development and education in the region. These efforts include involvement in the development of Wake Forest Innovation Quarter and educational outreach in the community about regenerative medicine and the wonders of science.
- Wake Forest Innovation Quarter - WFIRM is the premier tenant in this urban research park that is a hub for innovation in the biomedical sciences and information technology.
- SciWorks Exhibit - WFIRM is featured in a SciWorks exhibit that highlights technological innovations made in Winston-Salem.
- Education Outreach - The faculty at WFIRM work to educate the community about regenerative medicine as well as to promote careers in science.
- Teacher Externships and NC New Schools - The faculty and students at WFIRM work to educate middle and high school teachers about regenerative medicine in order that they can integrate information back into the classroom.
Middle school students learn about skin and bioprinting while visiting WFIRM.
