ICRR Activities

The ICRR Leadership Council works together to organize educational opportunities that educate and promote collaborations for regenerative medicine and rehabilitation medicine researchers. This global synergy between institutions promotes communication and strengthens the focus and energy of our leading researchers, with the end goal being the exponential increase in Regenerative Rehabilitation research around the world.

Activities supported by the ICRR include:

  • An Annual Symposium on Regenerative Rehabilitation
    Now in its sixth year, the Symposium on Regenerative Rehabilitation brings together researchers from Consortium institutions, as well as regenerative medicine and rehabilitation researchers looking to bridge the divide, to learn and interact in a setting that fosters cross-disciplinary discussions and collaborations. This year’s Symposium, co-hosted by the University of Pittsburgh and Kyoto University, will be held in Pittsburgh, PA, on Nov. 1-3, 2017.
  • American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine (ACRM) Meeting - Regenerative Rehabilitation Symposium
    Join us at the 2017 ACRM meeting for our symposium, entitled Regenerative Rehabilitation: The role of mechanotherapies for optimizing regenerative medicine outcomes! Held October 23-28, 2017, in Atlanta, GA, experts in the field will present research demonstrating the effects of mechanical forces on stem cells and tissue regeneration. sd
  • TERMIS Thematic group
    This thematic group within TERMIS will strengthen the relationship between tissue engineering, regenerative medicine researchers, and rehabilitation scientists, ultimately accelerating the translation of tissue engineering technologies to the clinic.
  • TERMIS Pre-Conference Workshop on Regenerative Rehabilitation
    This pre-conference highlighted mechanobiological principles that guide the development of rehabilitation approaches, and how mechanical stimulation, via exercise, has the potential for enhancing functional outcomes of tissue engineering therapies. The pre-conference workshop, “Regenerative Rehabilitation: Optimizing regenerative medicine outcomes through mechanotherapies” was held in San Diego on Dec. 11, 2016.
  • TERMIS-EU 2017
    Researchers from ICRR institutions participated in the European meeting of the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society, held in Davos, Switzerland, from June 26-30, 2017. The TERMIS-EU conference brought together the leading experts within the tissue engineering and regenerative medicine community to present and discuss their latest scientific and clinical developments during their session, entitled “Regenerative Rehabilitation: modulation of the physical and mechanical microenvironment to promote tissue regeneration”. This meeting served as an important teaching platform and highlighted advancements in the field of Regenerative Rehabilitation.
