"The University of Pittsburgh and UPMC Health System provide the perfect home for such an enterprise because of its leading programs in organ transplantation, biomedical research and bioengineering."

"One of the attractive features of the McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine is that it will enable cutting-edge basic and clinical research to be performed across disciplines, allowing organ and tissue engineering and cellular and regenerative therapies to be developed and swiftly evaluated in the clinical setting," added Arthur S.
