Presentations and Workshops

AR3T researchers are presenting at a number of meetings and workshops every year to help investigators in disparate fields learn the skills and obtain the tools necessary to make the transition into this cutting-edge area of research. Check out the Upcoming Events page and join us!

AR3T has supported speakers and attendees at:

Regenerative Medicine Advanced Training Course
This course provided comprehensive and sophisticated training on state-of-the-art methods in bioengineering, and in cellular, molecular and genetic approaches for advancing the field of Regenerative Rehabilitation. The target audience was young and promising faculty already involved in rehabilitation and regeneration research, as well as advanced postdoctoral fellows; and consisted of a series of daily lecturers on emerging concepts, followed by extended discussion, laboratory research, technologically intense workshops and informal seminars over a week-long period.

Annual Regenerative Medicine Essentials Course: From the Fundamentals to the Future
This WFIRM course, held in Winston-Salem, NC, provided a state-of-the-art review of regenerative medicine including background material on  regenerative medicine and Regenerative Rehabilitation; ethical, economic and other issues important to regenerative medicine; and an opportunity to network and meet leading professionals in the field. The course integrated information, technologies and skills from the biological sciences, engineering, and legal fields.

Regenerative Medicine and Surgery Selective
This course was hosted by Mayo Clinic School of Medicine in conjunction with the Center for Regenerative Medicine and co-sponsored by Regenerative Medicine Minnesota. This selective engaged students in the fundamental principles and cutting-edge applications of regenerative medicine, including Regenerative Rehabilitation, within clinical practice.  Interactive lectures, laboratory demonstrations, clinical highlights, and patient interactions enriched the content of the selective and provided students with a hands-on experience of regenerative medicine at Mayo Clinic.

Frontiers in Stem Cells & Regeneration
This laboratory- and lecture-based course included a complete array of biological and medical perspectives from fundamental basic biology of “stemness” and mechanisms of regeneration through evaluation of pluripotent stem cells for therapeutic benefit, and included world class lectures from experts in the field.  This course also featured bioethics seminars, career coaching, and one-on-one mentoring by course faculty.
