A light lunch will be served beginning at 12:15 pm.
The 2017-2018 Regenerative Sciences Seminar Series (RS3) is sponsored by the UIC Center for Wound Healing and Tissue Regeneration. Seminars are generally held on the 3rd Thursday of the month at 12:30 in Lecture Hall North or South on the 4th Floor of the College of Dentistry.
CLEAR has also become one of the most scientifically recognized units of its kind. Their mission is to make measurable improvements in the health and function of the lower extremities by using multidisciplinary approaches to: biomedical engineering, clinical & basic sciences, and health services. This is evident by the number and diversity of publications in top tier journals; abstract presentations; study section, journal and meeting referee activities; and funding from industry and federal agencies. Their research focus includes diabetic complications of the lower extremity, biomechanics, motor learning & control, wound healing, and surgery.
