Dr. Donald Ingber is the 2016 recipient of the Pioneer Award

The Regenerative and Rehabilitative Advanced Training Course was held on June 6-10, 2016 in Pittsburgh, PA. Experts in the fields of regenerative medicine and/or rehabilitation provided a series of daily lectures on emerging concepts, followed by laboratory research and informal discussion. A highlight was a standing room only presentation by Dr. Donald Ingber (Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University), who is the 2016 recipient of the Pioneer Award. Previous awardees have included doctors Elizabeth Blackburn (UCSF), Sir John Gurdon (Cambridge University), Paul Berg (Stanford University), and Yvonne Maddox (NIH).

DOD seeking input about Regenerative Rehabilitation for program announcement
The Clinical and Rehabilitative Medicine Research Program (CRMRP) is seeking input from individuals who have a personal or professional interest in Regenerative Rehabilitation. The survey may be found at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/GXCW8VP.

Survey responses will be used to help set the research focus in the area of Regenerative Rehabilitation with the ultimate goal of providing the highest care for injured Service members and restoring full function and capabilities. Deadline for completion of the survey is 7/1/2016.

Dr. Michael Boninger talks about the field of Regenerative Rehabilitation, highlighting the potential for synergy between the fields of rehabilitative and regenerative medicine, and discusses AR3T resources available to support growth in the field.
