IRM Retreat 2021
Jan 26 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

The Institute for Regenerative Medicine will host a virtual edition of our annual retreat on Tuesday, January 26, 2021 from 1 PM to 5 PM. This year, we plan to focus on collaborations: how have IRM researchers recently partnered on exciting projects and how can we foster new team science efforts.  We hope to share examples of team-ups across disciplines, approaches, and the basic/clinical gap. Our goal is to have an afternoon of great discussion to help you think about your own research and what is possible in the coming years.

We will be putting together ideas for format and specific topics in the coming weeks. If you have any suggestions, please email Chris Yarosh (yaroshc@pennmedicine.upenn.edu).

Hope you can all join us in January!
