Hamon Center for Regenerative Science and Medicine
Welcome to the Hamon Center for Regenerative Science and Medicine
The Hamon Center for Regenerative Science and Medicine has three overarching goals:
To answer fundamental questions regarding the mechanisms of tissue and organ formation and disease
To discover strategies for tissue repair and regeneration based on a solid foundation of knowledge
To educate future generations of scientists and clinicians who will develop this new scientific knowledge and translate it into novel human therapies.
Seminar Series: "Genetic regulation of tissue growth and regeneration”
Iswar Hariharan, Ph.D. Professor, Molecular and Cell Biology Department at the University of California, Berkeley will be the featured speaker at noon on Wednesday, October 26, at the Seminars in Regenerative Medicine hosted by the Hamon Center for Regenerative Science and Medicine and the Children's Research Institute at UT Southwestern. The lecture titled: “Genetic regulation of tissue growth and regeneration” will be presented in McDermott Plaza D1.502. (Lunch provided for attendees.)
