We wish a safe and happy holiday to all! Since the formation of the McGowan Center for Artificial Organ Development (1992) and the McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine (2001) there have been many accomplishments advancing the science and clinical achievements in regenerative medicine-based therapies. We have seen progress in the areas of medical devices, tissue engineering, and cell-based therapies, and the prospects for the future are encouraging. Thanks for the opportunities and outcomes created by all who participate in or support the initiatives of the McGowan Institute. Best wishes for another successful year!
