Arnold I. Caplan, PhD presented the Keynote Lecture at The Society for Experimental Biology and Medicine conference in Memphis, TN April 29-May 1, 2022.



The Board of Directors of the nonprofit Regenerative Medicine Foundation (RMF) have nominated Arnold I. Caplan, PhD to receive the 2022 Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Action “Lifetime Achievement” Award for his important contributions in promoting scientific discovery to improve health and deliver cures. The award will be presented at the World Stem Cell Summit on June 10, 2022.


The May 2020 Investigator’s Meeting is cancelled. Normally, we would be inviting you to attend the Center’s annual May investigators’ meeting at this time. Unfortunately, in light of the COVID-19 outbreak, the university has prohibited gatherings/meetings of more than 25 people, as part of the social distancing approach to managing the spread of this disease. This prohibition will continue through the end of the semester, at which point it will be reassessed, and may be extended. We are thus cancelling the May event. As the COVID situation evolves, it is possible that we may reschedule at a later date.
