About the McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine
The mission of the McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine is:
- to provide a national center of expertise in regenerative medicine focused on developing and delivering therapies that reestablish tissue and organ function impaired by disease, trauma, or congenital abnormalities
- to foster the generation of scientific knowledge in regenerative medicine and to share that knowledge with researchers, clinicians, and the public through educational activities, training, and publications
- to educate and train scientists and engineers to pursue technologies related to regenerative medicine, and train a generation of clinicians in the implementation of regenerative therapies
- to support the commercialization of technologies in regenerative medicine and thereby accelerate the translation of research discoveries to clinical implementation and patient benefit
