AR3T supports educational programs, courses, symposia, workshops and lectures.
AR3T’s goal is to provide trainees, junior faculty, researchers, doctors and rehabilitation clinicians with first-hand exposure to laboratory techniques and access to foundational knowledge so crucial for developing the research expertise needed to be truly competitive in the fast-moving field of Regenerative Rehabilitation.
2021 Educational and Training Opportunities
Courses: Part I: Fundamentals of Regenerative Sciences (Feb. 15-19, 2021) and Part II: Advanced Regenerative Medicine and Surgery (June 14-18, 2021)
Ideal Applicant: Medical student, MD, PM&R resident, DPT, PhD in regenerative medicine, engineering and/or rehabilitation research fields.
Award: Those selected will participate in the two-course series. Each participant from AR3T will also be scheduled to meet one-on-one with a Mayo expert, tailored to match their backgrounds and interests. This is an exclusive opportunity through AR3T for those outside of the Mayo/Minnesota community

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. Although held as a virtual course in 2020, participants still received a high-quality educational experience.
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.
