The Business of Regenerative Medicine is organized collaboratively by CCRM, the Harvard Stem Cell Institute, Case Western Reserve University and the Parker H. Petit Institute for Bioengineering & Bioscience at Georgia Tech. The course was developed at Case Western Reserve University by Professor Arnold Caplan. The course, now in its 10th year, educates graduate students and executives alike on the key economic and business issues in the field of regenerative medicine and cell therapies. You can view last year's program, hosted by Harvard Stem Cell Institute, here.
