Advances in tissue engineering, bioprinting, and body-on-a-chip technologies: An update for regenerative medicine workforce development


Technologies in regenerative medicine are developing rapidly, leading to advanced diagnostics and therapies. Tissue engineering, bioprinting, and body-on-a-chip technologies are a few of these technologies. This webinar, sponsored by the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine, Regen Med Development Organization, and Stem Cells Portal, provides an update on these technologies and how they will shape the work of skilled technical graduates in the future.


  • Participants will increase their knowledge of the current status and future direction of the three featured regenerative medicine technologies.
  • Participants will be able to identify the connections between their current curriculum and the developing technologies in regenerative medicine and assess potential curriculum changes needed for the future.
  • Participants will be able to articulate to students and colleagues these developments in regenerative medicine and to assess the potential impact of these technologies, and/or processes. 


  • Tracy L. Criswell, PhD, Associate Professor, WFIRM - Tissue Engineering and Regeneration 
  • Sean V. Murphy, PhD, Associate Professor, WFIRM - Bioprinting 
  • Thomas D. Shupe, PhD, Associate Professor, WFIRM - Body-on-a-Chip 
  • Gary Martin Green, Chief Workforce Development Officer, WFIRM - Moderator  

Faculty and academic leaders at community colleges and university bioscience programs that train bioscience technicians are invited to attend this webinar to learn more about what developments to share with your students.

This webinar is hosted by the RegenMed Development Organization (ReMDO), Stem Cells Portal, Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM), and supported by the National Science Foundation Advanced Technological Education Program and Bank of America.
