Mayo Clinic, the University of Pittsburgh, Stanford University and the University of California, San Francisco, recently teamed up to help advance research in the field of regenerative rehabilitation. Funded by a grant from the National Institutes of Health, this collaborative effort is formally known as the Alliance for Regenerative Rehabilitation Research and Training, or AR3T for short.
The alliance's overarching goal is to expand scientific knowledge, expertise and methodologies across the domains of rehabilitation science and regenerative medicine.
"AR3T is going to provide resources for the national community so that the field of regenerative rehabilitation grows," explains Carmen M. Terzic, M.D., Ph.D. , chair of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota. "Through this collaboration we hope to create synergies that will help optimize independence and quality of life for individuals with disabilities."
With a strong emphasis on accelerating scientific progress and minimizing disciplinary barriers, the alliance will provide the following:
