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.

Trainee Fellowships

The Hamon Center for Regenerative Science and Medicine (CRSM) is currently accepting nominations by faculty members for CRSM Trainee Fellowships, for the 2020–2021 Academic Year. We anticipate awarding up to four $25,000 fellowships to support graduate student or postdoc costs during the 2020–2021 academic year (e.g., stipend, tuition, health insurance). Applications are limited to one per laboratory and both foreign and domestic trainees will be considered. Trainees receiving awards will be expected to attend the Regenerative Medicine Seminar Series. The deadline for application submission is December 21, 2020.
