Shuler, Ph.D., the James M. and Marsha McCormick Chair of Biomedical Engineering and the Samuel B. Eckert Professor of Chemical Engineering, Cornell University School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering.

The 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 goal of the event is to present and exchange new results and advances in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. An early registration discount is offered through Sept. 30, with a special drawing to win an Apple iPad for registrations received before the early bird cut-off.
