Panel Discussion lead by Jason Wertheim, MD, PhD, Northwestern University


Welcome to the 2014 TERMIS-AM Annual Meeting Site! The Theme for the 2014 TERMIS-AM Meeting is "Restoring Lives Through Regenerative Medicine," reflecting the increasing need to consider the societal impact of tissue engineering. To this end, the 2014 scientific program will focus on the impact of regenerative medicine upon patient lives. We also plan a close cooperation with federal institutions, including the FDA, NIH, NIST, and NSF, to provide the TERMIS-AM meeting with scientific content that has not been achieved in earlier meetings as well as a strong patient-oriented point of view.

The TERMIS-AM Meeting is the key annual meeting held in the Americas each year, and brings together over 800 researchers, scientists, trainees, and students from both academia and industry to discuss critical developments in the field. The meeting is led by keynote speakers each day, and consists of parallel technical sessions as well as poster presentations. A strong role in the meeting planning and execution will be played by the TERMIS-AM Student and Young Investigator Section (SYIS). Furthermore, there will be an emphasis on promoting the careers of women and underrepresented groups in the tissue engineering and regenerative medicine fields.

We hope to see you in Washington, DC!
