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.
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. The deadline for submission of applications is Friday September 2, 2016.
The Hamon Center for Regenerative Science & Medicine is proud to announce web streaming for the UT Southwestern Wellstone Muscular Dystrophy Center first Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Clinical Symposium on Friday August 26, 2016.
Drs. Joseph Hill and Jay Schneider, CRSM faculty members reported in the journal Science Signaling, that targeting processes known to be disrupted in cancer can confer benefit in heart disease.
Dr. Hao Zhu, a CRSM faculty member, reported in Cell Stem Cell that inactivating a certain protein-coding gene (Arid1a) promotes liver tissue regeneration in mammals.
