Pursue graduate training in the emerging interdisciplinary field of regenerative medicine and technologies

ICRME Director Chandan Sen, PhD and Associate Director of Education Parker Evans, PhD, stand in the Walther Hall Atrium.

Indiana University School of Medicine will soon offer master of science and doctoral degrees in Regenerative Medicine and Technologies to train the next generation of physicians, scientists and engineers in regenerative medicine, with a strong industry focus. The degree program will launch sometime between 2023 and 2024.

Regenerative medicine is an innovative new branch of medicine that develops methods to regrow, repair or replace damaged or diseased cells, organs or tissues. The field includes the generation and use of cell/tissue reprogramming, therapeutic stem cells, tissue engineering and the production of bioartificial organs.

The Regenerative Medicine and Technologies (RMAT) graduate program is an interdisciplinary program led by Dr. Chandan K. Sen and leverages the expertise of faculty affiliated with the Indiana Center for Regenerative Medicine and Engineering within the School of Medicine, as well as collaborators at IUPUI, Indiana University Bloomington and other institutions that share our research goals. The center is a national research leader in the areas of tissue nanotransfection, wound care, cell-based therapies, and military medicine.
