Given the uniquely centralized Penn campus, the center as dedicated to the fields of cellular engineering, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, is well positioned to establish a national reputation. The Penn School for Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) in particular, given its dynamic, interdisciplinary faculty and overall interest in biomedicine would be in a prime position to lead this effort. As such the center fosters substantial synergies with other Penn entities:

 

THE INSTITUTE FOR REGENERATIVE MEDICINE (IRM)

 

This institute is focused on supporting a wide range of scientific, policy, and legal challenges associated with the rapid progress of stem cell biology. IRM supports a number of Penn-wide initiatives, including faculty recruiting in stem cell research, a seminar series, and pilot grant program. CECR and IRM have substantial positive synergies, in part fueled by the need in the stem cell community for new engineering tools to control cell function. However CECR research and technologies are directed to greater applications than stem cells and therefore is distinct.

THE INSTITUTE FOR MEDICINE AND ENGINEERING

 

This institute is focused on enhancing interactions between the School of Medicine and SEAS, and is an important factor in integrating both SEAS and the School of Medicine with CECR, its research, and its operations.
