Welcome to the Hamon Center for Regenerative Science and Medicine

The Hamon Center for Regenerative Science and Medicine will have 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.

PCBC Crispr Stem Cell Engineering Course

A Progenitor Cell Biology Consortium course, CRISPR/Cas9 Genome Engineering for Human Progenitor Cell Biology and Translation, will take place September 8-11 at UT Southwestern. 

The course includes both lectures and lab activities. It is open to graduate students, postdoctoral students, researchers, and faculty members who are interested in applying CRISPR/Cas9 tools and systems to genome engineering in human progenitor cells and/or other experimental models.

Register and learn more online. To attend only the lectures, email Chengzu Long, Ph.D.

Mission Statement

We seek to improve human health by understanding the basis of organ formation and leveraging this knowledge to develop therapies for treating tissue injury, degenerative disorders, and age-related disease.
