The Institute for Regenerative Medicine is based in the Smilow Center for Translational Research and extends across UPenn’s campus.
The links between medicine, engineering and veterinary science differentiate Penn’s Institute for Regenerative Medicine from other stem cell Institutes across the country.
The IRM promotes discoveries in stem cell biology and regeneration to generate new therapies that may alleviate suffering and disease.
When our interdisciplinary research and programs bring together individuals with broad interests and diverse backgrounds, our collaborations lead to greater advances.
Stem cell research is critical to developing new skin tissues and, ultimately, changing the way we care for devastating wounds.
At Penn, we're discovering real possibilities of future treatments for cardiac disease because we have the research and clinical expertise to make it happen.
