Center for Regenerative Biology and Medicine
Embargo Lift Date
The Indiana University Center for Regenerative Biology and Medicine (CRBM) was established at IUPUI in 2001 through a grant from the State of Indiana 21st Century Fund. In 2007, the CRBM was selected as an IUPUI Signature Center. Participating faculty come from the Schools of Science, Informatics, Medicine, and Dentistry. The Center is administered from the
Department of Biology in the School of Science. Center administration consists of a Director, a Scientific Board to advise on scientific direction, and a Commercial Board to advise on technology transfer. For a complete description of the Center and its activities, see our website at www.regen.iupui.edu. Missions
• Conduct multidisciplinary research aimed at understanding the mechanisms of natural regeneration, and translate the findings into regenerative therapies for tissues that fail to regenerate.
• Provide graduate level academic training in regenerative biology and medicine.
• Promote technology transfer.
