The Department of Pathology, Microbiology, Immunology is sponsoring a new Program in Regenerative Medicine (PMI-PIRM). The mission of PMI-PIRM is devoted to understanding the response to injury. We are studying the molecular factors that regulate restoration of mechanical integrity, control of fibrosis, role of resident progenitor cells, cell-matrix interactions, all of which impact the renewal of injured parenchyma back to functional parameters. These approaches provide a comprehensive ability to apply fundamental research at Vanderbilt to regenerate tissues for human therapies.
We hope to bring together talent in fibrosis, stem cells, development and bioengineering to develop improved diagnostics, therapeutics, and decision-support tools to impact wound healing and tissue repair.
The unique collaboration between physicians, scientists, and engineers enables us to bring a broad variety of expertise to bear in an effort to solve the important but difficult clinical problem of how to promote wound healing via regeneration instead of scarring.
PMI-PIRM will sponsor an annual Symposia and monthly specialty program meetings (WIPs). We invite you to participate in our activities and support our work.
