Repair, Regeneration

and Reconstruction

The field of tissue repair, regeneration and reconstruction holds great promise for the future of medicine, creating a new frontier in healthcare delivery and international research priorities. With its ever-growing role in healthcare, especially in reconstructive surgery, it will soon lead to more personalised treatment.


With the potential to greatly change the way we treat the aging population, it represents one of the most exciting research areas in medicine and surgery.

Our Vision



To achieve real advances in human health by creating a forum for the dissemination of research in repair, regeneration and reconstruction between the brightest minds in biomedical research from around the world.


Our Mission


To act as a bridge between science and surgery, enabling translation of concepts from the laboratory to real therapies and treatments.

To offer an exciting opportunity for scientists and physicians to discuss their latest work and future challenges in a uniquely interactive, stimulating and lively format.

To foster support for commercialisation of reconstructive and regenerative technologies.
