Trainee Fellowship Competition

The Hamon Center for Regenerative Science and Medicine is proud to announce the first Trainee Fellowship Competition. Up to four fellowships in the amount of $25,000 each will be awarded to talented graduate student or postdoctoral trainees whose research focuses on tissue formation in health and disease, tissue repair, or tissue regeneration. Applications are due one minute before midnight (11:59 p.m.) September 30, 2014.

The Hamon Center for Regenerative Science and Medicine (CRSM) will provide a number of educational opportunities for both local scientists and interested members of the greater Dallas/Fort Worth community.

We have organized a seminar series focused on stem cell biology and regenerative medicine. This series will start in September 2014 and will include internal and world-renowned external speakers.

In addition, the CRSM plans to provide a number of competitive graduate student and postdoctoral fellowships. Scientists who receive these awards will participate in a regular works-in-progress meeting and we anticipate that both the seminar series and works-in-progress will help foster interactions between many UT Southwestern Medical Center scientists interested in tissue formation and regeneration.

In the future, we also hope to create web-based resources that will provide both basic and advanced information about stem cell biology and the great promise of regenerative medicine.
