The Center for Vascular Remodeling and Regeneration is to serve as a vehicle that unites scientists and clinicians at the University of Pittsburgh and University of Pittsburgh Medical Center actively engaged in studying the various aspects of vascular disease and clinical solutions such as tissue engineering, regeneration and cell therapy. This formal unification is designed to accelerate the "bench-to-bedside" process of vascular based therapies by:
Fostering collaboration across departments, schools, and institutes in order to develop multidisciplinary research teams.
Generating a core set of facilities and resources for standard techniques and services specifically geared toward vascular research.
Developing standards for the testing and validation of new therapies and devices.
Providing a medium for data sharing to increase the efficiency and utility of individual research projects.
The Center for Vascular Remodeling and Regeneration is a relatively new initiative, but its base institutions, affiliations, facilities, and talent pool are well established and substantial. We have a long-term interest in the mission of the CVRR, and invite other professionals who share our commitment to join us in this dynamic, interdisciplinary effort.
