Veterinary and Human Medical Centers Collaborate
Combined approach offers new treatments for dogs with naturally occurring diseases
The Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine and Wake Forest Universitys Institute for Regenerative Medicine in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, signed an agreement in January to form the Virginia Tech/Wake Forest Center for Veterinary Regenerative Medicine (CVRM). The goal is to facilitate the use of cutting-edge, regenerative (stem cell) treatments for pets and people. Clinical trials performed at the center will provide valuable information concerning the effects of stem-cell therapy.
