Into the Lab Pre- and Post- Course Workshops

We are excited to offer three new Into the Lab workshops. These workshops will be held at the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM). Each will provide hands-on interaction and demonstrations with cutting-edge technologies and techniques for regenerative medicine applications. 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. Additional details will be posted February 2016.

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.
