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 began 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.
