Student involvement has been a critical component of every conference, and remains part of the TERMIS' mission. We will continue our commitment to provide many learning opportunities during the conference, as well as the opportunity to interact and network with today's leading regenerative medicine experts.
Student and Young Investigator Section (SYIS)
Student involvement is a critical component of TERMIS. SYIS provides a platform for the "next generation" of scientists and engineers in the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine to interact. SYIS aims to further the professional and scientific development of its members. The TERMIS definition for a Student member is any individual, who is engaged as a full-time graduate or undergraduate, in a university or college program and is actively involved in research in the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. Young Investigators are defined as persons who are employed by an academic institution in the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, who have been awarded their doctoral degree within the past 3 years and who are not holding an appointment as a faculty or academic staff in a university/research institute.
TISSUE ENGINEERING RESOURCE CENTER
TISSUE ENGINEERING, THE OFFICIAL JOURNAL OF TERMIS, IS PROUD TO PRESENT THE “TISSUE ENGINEERING RESOURCE CENTER” TO ALL TERMIS MEMBERS, PRESENTING HELPFUL TOOLS AND RESOURCES FOR RESEARCHERS AROUND THE WORLD. INCLUDED IN THIS RESOURCE CENTER ARE VIDEOS AND PRESENTATION MATERIALS FROM WORKSHOPS HELD AT PAST TERMIS MEETINGS. WE WILL BE ADDING MANY ADDITIONAL RESOURCES AS WE BUILD THIS “TOOL BOX” SO MAKE SURE TO ACCESS OUR RESOURCE CENTER ON A REGULAR BASIS. TO GAIN ACCESS TO THE TISSUE ENGINEERING RESOURCE CENTER, PLEASE CLICK HERE.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE TISSUE ENGINEERING RESOURCE CENTER, PLEASE EMAIL SOPHIE MOHIN SMOHIN@LIEBERTPUB.COM FOR MORE INFORMATION.
