4th annual Regenerative Medicine Essentials Course
June 5 – 9, 2017, Winston-Salem, North Carolina
We at Regenerative Medicine Foundation are proud to be partnering with The Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM) for the fourth annual Regenerative Medicine Essentials Course, to be held June 5 – 9 2017 at the new Wake Forest Bowman Gray Center for Medical Education.
Our Executive Director Bernard Siegel serves as course co-director along with course founder and director Anthony Atala, M.D.
This one-week course, which features “Into the Lab” hands-on workshops, is taught by prominent experts, providing attendees a firm foundation into the field of regenerative medicine, which works to restore structure and function to damaged tissues and organs. From the science behind pioneering discoveries and clinical applications, to regulatory and manufacturing challenges, the course provides a comprehensive look at progress to date, current challenges, new “hot” topics as well as future applications.

The course program is designed for clinicians, early lab researchers, laboratory technicians, MD, MS and PhD students, industry representatives, advanced undergraduate students and patient advocates. Topics include stem cells, biomaterials, cell therapies, clinical trials, and much more.
“The Regenerative Medicine Foundation is dedicated to accelerating the field by offering educational programs and events,” said RMF executive director Siegel. “We believe that the RME Course is unique, offering participants from all stakeholder communities a special deliverable — a contextual understanding of regenerative medicine, taught by some of the top experts on the planet.”

Siegel said the RMF is delighted to work side-by-side with Atala and the distinguished research institution he leads, the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine.
“We welcome the RMF’s partnership on this course,” said Atala. “RMF and Bernard Siegel have provided critical leadership to the field for close to 15 years, including founding the World Stem Cell Summit and organizing dozens of public education events and activities to foster public awareness.”
