Pre- and Post- Course Workshops are now filled to capacity.

We are excited to offer two, new Into the Lab workshops. These workshops are held at the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM). Both provide hands-on interaction and demonstrations with two cutting-edge technologies and techniques for regenerative medicine applications – 3D bioprinting and decellularization/ recellularization of organs and tissues. Participants will have an opportunity to review and interact with these technologies and leading researchers at WFIRM. Workshops are also designed to provide translational and commercial insight regarding these technologies and will highlight some of the current challenges and discuss potential approaches to overcome technical hurdles. Limited to 10 participants per session and only open to Regenerative Medicine Essentials Course attendees.

We will also solicit questions from registered participants to promote discussions.   

Optional Textbook: Principles of Regenerative Medicine, 2nd Edition
Edited by: Anthony Atala, Robert Lanza, James A. Thomson and Robert M. Nerem
ISBN: 978-0-12-381422-7

Virtually any disease that results from malfunctioning, damaged, or failing tissues may be potentially cured through regenerative medicine therapies, by either regenerating the damaged tissues in vivo, or by growing the tissues and organs in vitro and implanting them into the patient. Principles of Regenerative Medicine discusses the latest advances in technology and medicine for replacing tissues and organs damaged by disease and of developing therapies for previously untreatable conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, liver disease, and renal failure. Download select chapters for free or purchase entire pdf at Science Direct.


All refund requests must be in writing. Full refunds will be given for cancellations received by June 15th. Cancellations received after June 15th will be subject to a $150 cancellation fee. No refunds will be given after July 15th.
