TERMIS North America is dedicated to bring together the international community of persons engaged or interested in the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine and promotes education and research within the industry. The annual meeting serves as an international forum to bring 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 care of patients in this very important way.

TERMIS NA 2011 promises to be larger than ever, showcasing the latest tissue engineering/regenerative medicine approaches to restoring the function of damaged and diseased tissues and organs. The event will concurrently explore the platform/enabling technologies and many of the broader cross-cutting challenges facing an international community of scientists, clinicians, students, business leaders, entrepreneurs, and representatives of government funding agencies.

Our collective goal will be to share research and discoveries in the fields of cellular therapies, medical devices and artificial organs, biomaterials, bioengineering, and clinical translation.
