Unique Program Features
Programs are strategically focused on the interface between regeneration/disease organ model systems and functional neuroanatomy and physiology. Group problem identification is driven by a collaborative group of clinician researchers. Catalytic mechanisms exist for cross training and expertise development between research centers. Further, the training structure emphasizes experiences in tissue and organ engineering laboratories in parallel with education in neuromodulation, translational theory, and practice.
