On March 16, it was a great pleasure and, even more, an honor for me to speak at NIH in Maryland as part of the Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series (WALS). WALS is the highest profile lecture program at NIH, with each session including some of the pioneers in biomedical and behavioral research. The title of my speech was “Bone Regenerative Engineering: A Convergence Approach,” and I detailed many aspects of our regenerative engineering work including the HEAL Project. Many thanks to NIH for inviting me. I also want to thank them for continuous support on our research programs here at UConn Health.
