Bridging the Gap between Research and Clinical Trials
The Center for Innovation in Restorative Medicine is leading the effort to accelerate the:
- Development of new regenerative medicine technologies, devices, and reconstructive treatment strategies.
- Process between taking research to the clinical trials phase.
When we're presented with an unmet clinical need, our experts develop a comprehensive plan that includes data research and analysis, and extensive regenerative medicine treatment options and technologies.
This strategy of bridging the gap between research and clinical trials can reduce the five- to eight-year launch of a Phase 1 clinical trial to just two to three years.

Collaborative Approach to Regenerative Medicine
The UPMC Center for Innovation in Restorative Medicine works with organizations throughout the United States and the world to develop clinical trials that will help change the face of regenerative medicine.
Our largest partner, the United States Department of Defense, utilizes the expertise, technologies, and treatments available at our center to fulfill the clinical needs of wounded military personnel. Our experts have successfully researched and developed several clinical trials that have benefited many wounded soldiers and helped them return to leading normal lives.
