Robert Gourdie invited to lecture at the 60th anniversary celebration of the Institute of Physiology of the Czech Academy of Sciences
Robert Gourdie, a professor at the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute, was invited to speak at the 60th anniversary celebration of the Institute of Physiology of the Czech Academy of Sciences.
The Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute has been named a recipient of a generous grant from the Virginia Biosciences Health Research Corporation.
Robert Gourdie, a professor at the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute and director of the Center for Heart and Regenerative Medicine Research, has compiled, edited, and published a book titled, Wound Regeneration and Repair: Methods and Protocols. The book delves into the molecular underpinnings of the healing of tissues and organs, including the eyes, skin, neural system, and heart. It is a mix of review articles and cookbook-style “how-to” pieces that provide insight into the methodology of carrying out experiments in the field. It also details necessary equipment and tips and tricks not normally included in scientific papers.
Robert Gourdie, a professor at the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute, delivered a lecture at the sixth annual Carilion Clinic Research Day on April 25. The conference was intended to highlight translational research, one of Carilion Clinic’s continuing focal points. Gourdie was a logical choice to speak at the event, as his research into novel wound healing drugs was spun off into a startup company, FirstString Research Inc.
