Discovery Place and TERMIS-AM 2017 Public Outreach Day, Tuesday, December 5th

The Path Forward for Regenerative Medicine Growing "New" Futures in Regenerative Medicine

The field of regenerative medicine has shown enormous progress to improve human health by restoring damaged and diseased tissues and organs. As this exciting field moves steadily forward, with the North Carolina region emerging as a global leader, and we focus on the translation of laboratory work to new treatments for patients, there is an increased need to expose our youth to the field. 

With interest in developing the next generation of talent, we are excited to enable a public outreach component to the high profile annual meeting of the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society (TERMIS) in partnership with Discovery Place and the TERMIS Student for Young Investigator Section and the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine.  The intent is to engage and excite our youth as we increase their awareness pertaining to the science of the field.  In alignment with the scientific themes, special workshops and activities of the TERMIS-AM conference, this special outreach component at Discovery Place in the “Explore Me” museum laboratory -- led by TERMIS and SYIS volunteers -- will include a 90 minute session for a total of 60 high school student participants recruited from local STEM and Health Sciences Academy High Schools, with special activities, demos and dialogues.  In addition to the 90 minute session at Discovery Place, high school student participants continue to engage with SYIS leaders and TERMIS volunteers as they tour through the TERMIS-AM meeting with invitation to attend special scientific sessions, poster session and exposition. 

About TERMIS-AM:  To accomplish its mission, the Tissue Engineering Regenerative Medicine International Society – America (TERMIS-AM) Chapter brings 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 field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine through regular meetings, publications and other forms of communication. The Society also serves as an international forum to promote the informed discussion of challenges and therapeutic benefits of the application of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine technologies. Hosted by the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine, The 2017 TERMIS-AM meeting will bring together nearly 1,000 global leaders from academia, industry and government as well as young investigators and students.  The conference will focus on the theme, “The Path Forward for Regenerative Medicine: Traversing the Lab to the Patient.” This theme focuses on a vital goal of the Society, which is to bring you closer to the key professionals in the field and to support your efforts to accelerate your research to the ultimate benefit of the patients.
