Center of Regenerative Medicine receives grant from NIH to train fellows in regenerative medicine

The Center of Regenerative Medicine at the School of Medicine has received a five-year $1.2 million training grant from the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to create an interdisciplinary program to train postdoctoral fellows in regenerative medicine. Farshid Guilak, the Mildred B. Simon Research Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery and co-director of the center, will direct the program. A surge in the use of regenerative medicine techniques has produced a need for well-trained bioengineers and scientists to work in fields such as stem cell biology, genome editing, tissue engineering, drug delivery and gene therapy.
