In 2017, Regeneration Next received an Intellectual Community Planning Grant to seed collaborative teams, a priority outlined in the Together Duke Strategic Plan. Our goals for grant outcomes included better communication amongst researchers, engineers, clinicians, and experts and ultimately more effective translation of tissue regeneration research to potential treatments in an ethical and safe manner. We focused on two strategies: building multidisciplinary research communities at Duke, and increasing recognition of Duke’s regenerative medicine strengths.
