UBC Tissue Clearing and Expansion 2021

Online

BCREGMED and the Dynamic Brain Circuits in Health & Disease team are excited to offer a TWO DAY online workshop to facilitate the use of tissue clearing and expansion techniques in the research lab. September 22nd and 23rd 10AM - 1PM both days ZOOM Purpose Biological specimens are intrinsically difficult to image.  Currently used tools and methods, which cut two-dimensional sections of tissue samples to provide insight into the cellular components, lack in their ability to reveal the systemic nature of tissues and organs which are inherently three-dimensional. On the other hand, imaging deep into intact tissues brings with it [...]

Regenerative Rehabilitation Research Symposium

Online
Online Event

Regenerative Rehabilitation: an emerging field that integrates regenerative medicine with rehabilitation therapies Simon Fraser University and BCREGMED are proud to present a first-of-its-kind, virtual Regenerative Rehabilitation Research Symposium taking place January 19th and 20th, 2021 (10AM-12PM both days)! This unique event seeks to explore the interface of tissue engineering and regenerative therapies with rehabilitation techniques. Background: As most of us know, regenerative medicine involves the regeneration or replacement of diseased cells and tissues using tools such as stem cells, engineered tissues, biomaterials, or molecules. Two pressing questions surround this approach: 1) it is necessary to precondition biological materials prior to implantation? [...]
