Advancing Regenerative Medicine Workshop

Become Part of a Medical Revolution in Minnesota . . .

Current undergraduate students majoring in the sciences are invited to apply for a two-week workshop on Advancing Regenerative Medicine to be held May 29-June 9, 2017 at the Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota Winona Campus.

Students selected to take part in this state-of-the-art educational experience focused on advancing clinically relevant scientific discovery in regenerative medicine and tissue engineering will receive $1,000 and obtain complimentary room and board for the two-week workshop.

Focused on an evolving area of science, this workshop will feature innovative learning and hands-on activities on the Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota Winona Campus, including in modern classrooms and labs in the university’s new Science and Learning Center.
