Regenerative medicine workshops to debut at TERMIS North America Annual Conference
Date:11/16/2010

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. Tuesday, Nov. 16, 2010 Tying in with this year's conference theme, "Where Discovery Meets Innovation," two new pre-conference workshops will debut at this year's TERMIS-North America 2010 Conference and Expo (December 5-8, 2010) in Orlando, Fla.

The TERMIS (Tissue Engineering & Regenerative Medicine International Society) North America meeting is hosted by the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine, and chaired by Anthony Atala, M.D., institute director. James Yoo, M.D., Ph.D., an associate director and chief scientific officer at the institute, is the meeting's scientific program chair.

The workshops, which are co-sponsored by Forecast Technology Group Inc., will offer attendees an opportunity to learn at a more in-depth level about the latest advancements in bone tissue regeneration and biomaterials for cell therapy.

Bone Tissue Engineering and Regeneration, will be held from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 5, and will focus on how to accelerate the translation from discovery science to clinical applications, highlight solutions that have been investigated to date, and discuss specific, practical clinician-based approaches versus opting for off-the-shelf products. The scientific organizing committee includes: Jeremy Mao, D.D.S., Ph.D., professor of dental medicine, Columbia University, Regis O'Keefe, M.D., Ph.D., professor of orthopaedics, University of Rochester, and Fei Wang, Ph.D., program director, Musculoskeletal Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine Program, the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin.

Hyaluronan Biomaterials for Cell Therapy, will also debut on Sunday, Dec. 5 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Co-sponsored by Glycosan BioSystems, and organized by Glenn Prestwich, Ph.D., presidential professor of medicinal chemistry at the University of Utah, this educational program will focus on the chemistry and engineering of novel HA-derived biomaterials, by highlighting the design criteria for clinically useful HA biomaterials, as well as preclinical and clinical applications of HA-derived biomaterials.

A post-conference workshop, TERMIS-NA NIH Grant Writing, will close the annual conference on Wednesday, Dec. 8. The workshop, scheduled for noon to 6 p.m, is designed to help investigators write successful National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant applications through better understanding of the NIH grant processes, especially in light of the new application and review format. Each component of the new NIH application format will be discussed in detail and tips on how to interpret summary statement and prepare resubmission will be provided. Faculty members include experienced, funded investigators with first-hand NIH review experience. NIH program directors and review officers will be on hand to discuss NIH funding opportunities and review procedures. Students, postdoctoral fellows, clinical fellows, and faculty members are encouraged to attend to gain information and knowledge which will aid them to write competitive NIH grant applications.

The goal of these programs is to offer additional educational opportunities for conference and non-conference participants. More than 35 experts will share case studies and knowledge. Registration for all workshops is separate from the main conference. Due to limited seating, advanced registration is encouraged. For more information, visit www.termis.org/na2010.
