Regenerative Medicine Faculty

Learn more about this group by contacting Dr. Hongxiang Liu (RBC Grad Program Inquiry Form) or visiting the Regenerative Bioscience Center website.

Regenerative medicine translates biology, chemistry and physics into materials, devices, systems and a variety of therapeutic strategies which repair, replace or regenerate organs and tissues. This rapidly evolving interdisciplinary field in human and veterinary healthcare is transforming the practice of medicine, medical innovation and the production of medical devices and therapies. The purpose of this IG is to foster research and training in this rapidly developing area of veterinary and human medicine.
