REGENERATION, REJUVENATION, AND REHABILITATION: MULTIPLE PATHWAYS TO RESTORATION

Friday, Nov. 20, 2020 @11:00 am EST

Thomas Rando, MD, PhD
Professor, Department of Neurology and Neurological Sciences
Stanford University

Learning Objectives:

  • How regenerative medicine principles align with the goals of rehabilitation
  • How rehabilitation principles can promote tissue regenerative potential
  • Understand principles of cellular rejuvenation, and how they integrate into goals of functional restoration

Speaker Bio:

  • The Rando laboratory continues to identify stimuli that can induce stem cells in old tissues or repair injuries as effectively as in young tissues.  Dr. Rando’s work has broad implications for the fields of regenerative medicine, regenerative rehabilitation, and stem cell therapeutics.

Dr. Rando is a professor in the Department of Neurology and Neurological Sciences at Stanford University, where he is also Director of the Glenn Center for the Biology of Aging. He is Chief of Neurology Service at the VA Palo Alto Health Care System, where he directs the Center for Regeneration, Repair and Restoration (CTR3). He is an adjunct faculty member in the McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh. Dr. Rando received his AB, MD, and PhD degrees from Harvard University. He completed his residency in Neurology at the University of California, San Francisco, where he served as Chief Resident. From 1991-1994, he completed a post-doctoral fellowship in the Department of Molecular Pharmacology at Stanford University, and then was recruited to the faculty at Stanford in 1995.
