Seeking to spur development of innovative medical breakthroughs, Mayo Clinic Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, in partnership with the Center for Regenerative Medicine, started one of the nation's first doctoral research training programs in regenerative sciences.
The Regenerative Sciences Training Program at Mayo Clinic is a transdisciplinary Ph.D. concentration designed to prepare the next generation of scientists to accelerate the discovery, translation and application of cutting-edge regenerative diagnostics and therapeutics.
Due to its overwhelming success, the training program is transitioning to a complete Ph.D. track in 2021. Learn more on Mayo Clinic Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences' Ph.D. Program website.
Research interests of students in the Regenerative Sciences Training Program at Mayo Clinic include:
- Molecular and epigenetic mechanisms of stem and progenitor cell proliferation and differentiation, as well as tissue degeneration and regeneration
- Immune responses to viral insult and tissue healing
- Gene editing for cell therapy applications and to alter disease progression
- Exosomes in disease progression and for tissue regeneration
- Tissue engineering and bioengineering of novel therapies
