UIC Health Sciences UIC's Response to the Opioid Epidemic
Mar 04
March 04, 2020 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
The Hyatt Lodge

Illinois and the nation are in the midst of battling an opioid epidemic that impacts families and communities. In the U.S., more individuals die from prescription opioid overdoses than all illegal drugs combined. As an academic and research powerhouse, and with resources across the state of Illinois, UI Health is uniquely positioned to generate multi-faceted solutions. UIC's seven health sciences colleges and UI Health are coming together to develop innovative solutions to address the opioid epidemic.

Join us to hear more from a panel of our experts.

Students can attend the event at no cost.

UIC is a Leader in Regenerative Sciences Research

Moving beyond tissue replacement, using materials to enable our bodies to regenerate damaged and failing tissues.


We are leading investigations into how materials interact with living tissues, and the building of tissue replacements for the growth of cells/tissues to replace lost tissues. The Center for Wound Healing and Tissue Regeneration (CWHTR) is a unique community of scientists and clinicians devoted to the study of injury, wound healing, and regeneration. The Laboratory of Applied Dental Biomaterials and Interfaces is a NIH funded center studying the properties of the tooth in order to develop reparative/regenerative biomaterials to replace lost tooth structure.


Research at the UIC College of Dentistry

Our investigators lead cutting-edge research to discover and translate new knowledge at the boundaries of science, transforming oral health care practice, social systems and related technologies for the benefit of individuals, families and communities.
