    Short Description of Organization:

    "The goal of the Institute for Regenerative Medicine (IRM) at UPenn is to create new cells and tissues for research, diagnostics, and organ repair and replacement therapies. To this end, the IRM enables diverse experts to come together for basic research in stem cell biology and tissue regeneration and translates our discoveries into new clinical therapies to alleviate suffering and disease.

    The IRM at UPenn is distinct from other stem cell and regenerative medicine institutes around the world by engaging scientists, clinicians, and ethicists from medicine, engineering, veterinary sciences, dental medicine, a children ™s hospital, and the arts and sciences. Together, IRM investigators use cutting-edge methods to understand how cells and tissues are formed in the natural processes of embryonic development and during the body ™s ability to repair itself. We use the principles learned from the natural processes to generate new cells and tissue fragments in the laboratory and to control tissue regeneration in the body. Our work is aimed to model and study human diseases, to develop new diagnostics and medicines, and, ultimately, to replace damaged, aged, or diseased body parts."
