Workshops

Into the Lab Workshops

The Regenerative Medicine Essentials Summer course also offers pre- and post-course workshops. Our “Into the Lab” workshops provide hands-on interaction and demonstrations using cutting-edge technologies and techniques for regenerative medicine applications. Participants have an opportunity to review and interact with these technologies and leading researchers at the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM). Workshops are also designed to provide translational and commercial insight regarding these technologies and will highlight some of the current challenges and discuss potential approaches to overcome technical hurdles.

Pre- and Post-Course Workshop Registrations

Registration for the pre- and post-course workshops is not included in the Regenerative Medicine Essentials Summer Course registration. Registration is $125 per workshop and is limited to 15 participants for each workshop. Workshop registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. You must be a Regenerative Medicine Essentials Course attendee to register for the workshops. A discount of $50.00 is available for two workshop registrations.

Registration for the workshops is separate from registration for the Regenerative Medicine Essentials Course.
