"We are thrilled to be hosting the TERMIS-AM 2013 conference in Atlanta. This year's meeting will open with a special plenary session to commemorate 25 years since the first federally-funded tissue engineering meeting and explore the current impact and future promise of our field. Please save the date and we look forward to seeing you all in November!" - TERMIS-AM 2013 Atlanta Conference Chair, the TERMIS-AM Chapter Chair, and the Executive Director Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience - Robert E. Guldberg, PhD

"We are developing an exciting scientific program based upon the fundamental principles, emerging strategies and applications of the latest advances in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. In addition to focusing on the critical issues that broadly impact different tissue and organ systems, the program will include workshops and symposia on clinical and commercial translation. Greater opportunities for trainee participation are also being planned for scientific, networking, and outreach activities." TERMIS-AM 2013 Scientific Program Chair and the Director, Stem Cell Engineering Center at Georgia Tech - Todd C. McDevitt, PhD

Why Attend?

Meeting Highlights at a Glance

The TERMIS-AM conference brings together the multidisciplinary community of persons across the world engaged or interested in the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, and provides a forum for the exchange of information and ideas to foster collaboration, and promotes education and research within the discipline.

TERMIS-Americas Conference and Expo 2013 offers the industry's most dynamic forum for reporting on new discoveries, sharing data and insights and advancing collaborative efforts. The scientific program design will again feature today's most promising academic research efforts, combined with new developments and discoveries -- all setting the standards for achieving far-reaching impacts our roles in tissue engineering.

Please join us in Atlanta as we celebrate the past and report scientific discovers that will define the future of the tissue engineering and regenerative medicine industry.

Welcome NAVRMA! On behalf of TERMIS-AM, we are thrilled to host the North American Veterinary Regenerative Medicine Association's annual conference. On Monday and Tuesday, attendees from both groups will be able to "cross-over" to sessions of mutual interest.

Preliminary Conference Program


Opening Symposium: Tissue Engineering & Regenerative Medicine: Origins and its Evolution

This opening symposium, Tissue Engineering & Regenerative Medicine: Origins and its Evolution, will gather past, present and future leaders to mark this important 25-year milestone since the first federally-funded tissue engineering meeting held at Granlibakken, Lake Tahoe, California in February 1988.

As the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine has evolved over the years, resulting in groundbreaking medical science discoveries, it is important to revisit the discipline's history and lessons learned in order to guide the future of this ever-expanding, multidisciplinary field. Special recognition will also be given to the major pioneering leaders of the field and their important contributions. The symposium will be of great value to trainees and young investigators who will gain a better understanding and appreciation for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine as a research discipline.

Celebrate the TERMIS Community! Conference guests are invited to continue the celebration. Plans are underway to toast to the industry's progress during a special reception at a popular local Atlanta attraction. Hosted by the Parker H. Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience at Georgia Tech and corporate friends. More details to follow!!

Purpose and Scope:

The 2013 TERMIS-Americas Conference and Expo is the 12th in a series of continental meetings organized for the tissue engineering and regenerative medicine community. The conference will convene scientific and industry experts from all over the world who will be selected to report on their most recent research findings.

TERMIS-Americas 2013 will again be supported by an ever-growing industry base. In addition to our exhibitor and sponsor showcase, planning is now underway to feature an expanded glimpse into the industry's economic forecasts and a variety of new commercial opportunities available.

Most importantly, the Society is committed to bringing you closer to key professionals to support your mutual understanding of the field, accelerate your research in the field and to enable you to contribute to the ultimate medical discoveries. The #1 reason listed by past conference attendees as their reason to attend is having the ability to interact and learn from each other.
