Short Courses at CWRU


This course focuses on these cell-based therapies with emphasis on the new basic principles of Tissue Engineering and the detailed information and protocols for accomplishing these therapies. This course is intended for graduate students, post-graduate students, and health science professionals who are interested in Tissue Engineering with emphasis on the principles and detailed protocols used or being modeled for direct clinical use.

The course involves morning lectures by eminent scholars, and afternoon laboratories and lectures on the “how to” of cell culture and cell-scaffold interactions. These visual laboratories provide insight into the complex, multi-step technologies of today and tomorrow and provide the basis for standardizing cell-based technologies between various laboratories throughout the world.

2016 program is online!


A new certification course offered by our NCRM colleagues in collaboration with Rutgers‘ NIH Training Grant “Translational Research in Regenerative Medicine” and will run for 30 weeks (15 weeks per semester). This global initiative, will link stem cell and regenerative medicine centers, investigators, and students around the world to provide first-class educational and research opportunities. Consortium members will work together (1) to develop strong educational and research programs, (2) to facilitate the introduction of students and other colleagues to the field, and (3) to provide an enabling plat-form for collaborative development in the areas of stem cell and regenerative medicine. RENEW will be internet-based, which will enable presentations from participating institutions around the world.

The topics include fundamental stem cell biology, stem cell isolation, “dry lab technology,” specific preclinical applications, as well as such common issues in the field as signal transduction, cell proliferation, differentiation, assays in phenotypes, preclinical animal models, clinical trial design and regulatory issues.
