Due to the covid-19 outbreak, all programmes for 2020 have been cancelled.

The Cardiovascular Regenerative Medicine Summer school is a one-week interactive school for advanced undergraduate, master and PhD students who want to learn about the complexities of regenerative medicine in cardiovascular biomedical research.

During this summer school on cardiovascular regenerative medicine, the problem will be addressed from various angles. Guest lectures from clinically oriented scientists with a variety of different backgrounds ranging from e.g. medicine, cell biology, materials science and chemistry are combined with visits to companies which are involved in commercializing regenerative medicine one way or another.

You will take part in an interactive programme designed for students with different scientific backgrounds, needed to address regenerative medicine, to jointly provide innovative solutions for cardiovascular problems. These solutions are formulated during and presented at the end of the event. The process is supported by excellent lectures and workshops provided by experts in the field. To enhance the general knowledge, a Journal Club is organized in which teams provide their fellow CAVAREM-students with additional information obtained from pre-selected high profile reviews. Interpreting and presenting these reviews on the different general topics discussed during the Summer School will assist in the development of novel concepts for “curing” cardiovascular disease via regenerative methods as will be presented by each group at the end of the Summer School.
