Education & Outreach

The Center for Neuroregeneration has dynamic partnerships with various institutions within the Texas Medical Center and around the world to promote neuroregenerative education for graduate and post-doctoral students. Our faculty bring forward expertise in neural stem cell biology, neural activity and stimulation, robotics, cell growth, myelin and the genetic regulation of plasticity to train the next generation of scientists to bridge the gaps between the bench and the bedside in neuroregenerative medicine.


We provide training and mentorship to students from:


  • University of Houston, Houston, TX
  • Texas A&M, College Station, TX
  • Baylor University, Waco, TX
  • Duke University, Durham, NC
  • Tecnologico de Monterrey, Monterrey, NL, Mexico
  • LARCEL, Sevilla, Spain
  • University of Washington, Seattle, WA
  • University of St Thomas, Houston, TX
  • Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN

Spring Seminar Series: Neural Control of Organ Disease and Regeneration

The Neural Control of Organ Disease and Regeneration seminar series focusses on the neural control of organ degeneration and regeneration. This course is intended to complement research in organ regeneration, stem cell biology and tissue engineering by addressing the gaps in our knowledge of how the nervous system influences not only organ development, but also disease evolution and organ degeneration. The course will be team taught with each session comprised of clinical perspective on development and disease followed by an introduction to specific organ system regeneration approaches. Each session will conclude with class participation in formulating research questions and problem-solving. A diverse faculty has been incorporated into the training program, featuring labs from Baylor College of Medicine, Rice University, McGovern Medical School at University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, University of Houston and the Houston Methodist Research Institute.
