The overarching goal of the Alliance for Regenerative Rehabilitation Research & Training is to expand scientific knowledge, expertise and methodologies across the domains of rehabilitation science and regenerative medicine. Regenerative Rehabilitation is the integration of principles and approaches from the fields of rehabilitation science and regenerative medicine. Regenerative medicine focuses on the repair or replacement of tissue lost to injury, disease, or age, primarily via the enhancement of endogenous stem cell function or the transplantation of exogenous stem cells. A focus of Rehabilitation science is the use of mechanical and other physical stimuli to promote functional recovery. The objective of AR3T is to create synergies through the integration of these two approaches with the ultimate goal of optimizing independence and participation of individuals with disabilities.
AR3T is supported by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute Of Child Health & Human Development (NICHD), the National Institute Of Biomedical Imaging And Bioengineering (NIBIB) and National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) of the National Institutes of Health under award number P2CHD086843. AR3T offers significant educational, sabbatical and pilot funding programs. Learn More
