Focus: impact of regenerative medicine upon patient lives.
Site: Renaissance Hotel, Washington DC.
Time: Dec. 13-16 2014.

The TERMIS-AM Meeting is the key annual meeting held in the Americas each year, and brings together over 800 researchers, scientists, trainees, and students from both academia and industry to discuss critical developments in the field. The meeting is led by keynote speakers each day, and consists of parallel technical sessions as well as poster presentations. A strong role in the meeting planning and execution will be played by the TERMIS-AM Student and Young Investigator Section (SYIS). Furthermore, there will be an emphasis on promoting the careers of women and underrepresented groups in the tissue engineering and regenerative medicine fields.
