AR3T is supporting educational and training opportunities designed to foster learning for researchers as well as for rehabilitation clinicians.
AR3T supports educational programs and courses that provide trainees and junior faculty 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. AR3T is also presenting at a number of meetings and symposia on the topic of Regenerative Rehabilitation in order 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.
Stay tuned for 2019 educational and training opportunities through AR3T!
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 eager to learn about the newest findings and controversies. This dynamic training course provided 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. The primary aim was to educate and update rehabilitation and regenerative medicine researchers on the use of stem cells and tissue engineering for mechanistic discoveries and on designing improved strategies for rehabilitation discoveries, especially in the CNS and skeletal-muscular systems.
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, hosted by Mayo Clinic School of Medicine in conjunction with the Center for Regenerative Medicine and co-sponsored by Regenerative Medicine Minnesota, was designed to introduce participants to principles and practices of regenerative medicine and surgery. This selective engaged students in the fundamental principles and cutting-edge applications of regenerative medicine within clinical practice. This one-week selective followed a discover-translation-application curriculum that encouraged students to integrate new knowledge into 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.
