Regenerative Medicine Forum Offers “Young Minds” Program

22.03.2010
The Regenerative Medicine Foundation is pleased to announce a special “Young Minds” graduate student registration rate for its annual Translational Regenerative Medicine Forum, set for April 6-8 in Winston-Salem.

The forum is an annual event to convene the regenerative medicine community to focus on fulfilling the promise of the field, including best practices and business models. Keynote speakers and panelists will discuss scientific and clinical advances, trial design, venture funding and obtaining regulatory approval.

“As a leading international showcase of scientific discovery and commercialization in regenerative medicine, it’s imperative that we expose a younger generation of researchers and entrepreneurs to new ideas and best practices in the field,” said Anthony Atala, M.D., director of the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine, and a forum speaker.

With almost 70 speakers, the forum will include three keynote addresses, 10 panels that will cover all aspects of translation, from scientific updates to business models, as well as podium presentations on scientific discovery. In addition, 18 startup biotech companies will present their technologies to a group of venture capitalists and companies.

The forum is open to executives from biotechnology, pharmaceutical, medical device, and regenerative medicine companies; patient advocacy groups and medical research foundations; institutional investors from private equity and venture capital firms; academic researchers, clinical researchers and physicians; and those interested in health care innovation and personalized medicine.

The Young Minds Program is open to graduate students, post-doctoral students, or professional students enrolled in medicine, business or law programs. Students have access to all conference sessions and breaks for a reduced registration fee of $125. This does not include conference receptions, luncheons or dinners.

A limited number of Young Minds registrations are being offered, with more information at www.rmconferences.org

About the Regenerative Medicine Foundation
The Regenerative Medicine Foundation (www.regenerativemedicinefoundation.org) is an internationally-focused, not-for-profit organization created to enable the advancement of new treatments and therapies based on regenerative medicine, and ultimately, to realize the goals of personalized medicine.

Launched in 2005, the Foundation hosted one of the first regulatory meetings with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on the topic of regenerative medicine, and was instrumental in the formation of STRAC, the Soldier Treatment and Regeneration Consortium, a precursor to the Armed Forces Institute of Regenerative Medicine (AFIRM), and the Washington, DC-based Alliance for Regenerative Medicine.

Through educational programs, translational conferences and public policy initiatives, the Foundation advocates for increased medical research, promotes the training and education of scientists, and facilitates the translation of therapies to patients.

Im Focus: Attoseconds break into atomic interior

A newly developed laser technology has enabled physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (jointly run by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics) to generate attosecond bursts of high-energy photons of unprecedented intensity. This has made it possible to observe the interaction of multiple photons in a single such pulse with electrons in the inner orbital shell of an atom.

In order to observe the ultrafast electron motion in the inner shells of atoms with short light pulses, the pulses must not only be ultrashort, but very...

Im Focus: Good vibrations feel the force

A group of researchers led by Andrea Cavalleri at the Max Planck Institute for Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg has demonstrated a new method enabling precise measurements of the interatomic forces that hold crystalline solids together. The paper Probing the Interatomic Potential of Solids by Strong-Field Nonlinear Phononics, published online in Nature, explains how a terahertz-frequency laser pulse can drive very large deformations of the crystal.

By measuring the highly unusual atomic trajectories under extreme electromagnetic transients, the MPSD group could reconstruct how rigid the atomic bonds are...

Im Focus: Developing reliable quantum computers

International research team makes important step on the path to solving certification problems

Quantum computers may one day solve algorithmic problems which even the biggest supercomputers today can’t manage. But how do you test a quantum computer to...

Im Focus: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
