a Professor of Biology and the Director of the Skeletal Research Center at Case Western Reserve University. Dr. Caplan received his B.S. in Chemistry at the Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, Illinois; and his Ph.D. from The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland. Dr. Caplan did a Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Department of Anatomy at The Johns Hopkins University, followed by Postdoctoral Fellowships at Brandeis University, Waltham, Massachusetts with Dr. N. O. Kaplan and Dr. E. Zwilling.

He came to Case Western Reserve University as Assistant Professor of Biology in 1969 and rose through the ranks to become Professor at 1981.

He has received a number of awards including the Elizabeth Winston Lanier Award given by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons as part of their 1990 Kappa Delta Awards Program, the 1999 Marshall R. Urist Award for Excellence in Tissue Regeneration Research given by the Orthopaedic Research Society, the Genzyme Lifetime Achievement Award given by the International Cartilage Repair Society in 2007, the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society Inaugural Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010 and is an Inaugural Member of the “Pioneers of Innovation” chosen by the Advocacy Committee of the Orthopaedic Research Society, March 2014.

He has trained over 150 researchers, has over 400 published papers and manuscripts and has long been supported by the National Institutes of Health and other non-profit and for-profit agencies for his efforts in trying to understand the development, maturation and aging and regeneration of cartilage, bone, skin and other mesenchymal tissues.

an Assistant Professor in the Regenerative Medicine Program, Department of Physiology, University of Manitoba. Prior to joining as a faculty member in University of Manitoba, Dr. Dhingra received postdoctoral training in McEwen Centre for Regenerative Medicine, Toronto General Hospital and in the Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences, St. Boniface Hospital Research Centre in Winnipeg.

He received postdoctoral fellowship awards from CIHR and MHRC with high rankings. In October 2007, Dr. Dhingra received an award from Life Science Association of Manitoba for his contribution to cardiovascular research.

In May 2010 he received the Early Career Investigator Award from the International Society of Heart Research in Kyoto, Japan. Recently, Dr. Dhingra was a finalist for the Vivien Thomas Young Investigator Award at American Heart Association Scientific Sessions in Los Angeles.

In addition to his research program, Dr. Dhingra is also responsible for directing the Canada Italy Tissue Engineering Laboratory (CITEL), a collaboration between the University of Rome “Tor Vergata” and the Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences, St. Boniface Research Centre. Under his supervision CITEL will develop innovative technologies for biomaterials and will define pioneering procedures for cardiac tissue engineering.

Prof. ADONIS HIJAZ, MDCase Western Reserve Universityadonis.hijaz@uhhospitals.org
Dr. Adonis Hijaz is a urologic surgeon-scientist whose research focuses on understanding the mechanisms mediating the balance between injury and recovery following birth trauma, the role of human mesenchymal stem cells in recovery, and evaluation of the effects of aging on the balance and response to stem cell therapy.

Dr. Hijaz has developed and published frequently on the subject of animal models of FSUI and their applications for translational research questions related to female stress urinary incontinence.

Drs. Hijaz, Daneshgari and Chelimsky are active collaborators.
after his degree in Medicine and Cardiology, expanded his knowledge in basic and applied sciences in different Italian and foreign laboratories. At present, he has teaching appointments at the Medical School and at the Department of Biology of the University of Rome Tor Vergata.

Furthermore, he is Vice-Head of the Cardio-respiratory Clinic of the same University. Scientific advisor of major international organizations and member of international scientific societies, he has founded the Laboratory of Cellular and Molecular Cardiology and is Scientific Director of the Centre of Space Bio-Medicine of the University of Rome Tor Vergata.

He has also co-founded the Japanese-Italian Tissue Engineering Laboratory (JITEL) at the Tokyo Women's Medical University, the Canadian-Italian Tissue Engineering Laboratory (CITEL) at Winnipeg (Manitoba) and the Florida-Italy Tissue Engineering International Program (FITEIP) at Orlando (USA).

He has also inspired and founded the Center for Regenerative Medicine of the University of Rome Tor Vergata. Co-founder of the Italian Society of Cardiovascular Research and of the (Italian) National Institute for Cardiovascular Research. Member of international scientific societies, he is author of several papers published in peer-reviewed international scientific journals and Editor of books on stem cells and tissue engineering. Among others, in 1994, he organized the first international Congress in which the possibility of heart regeneration in mammalians has been analyzed. Since then, his major interests have been in cardiac pathophysiology, myocardial effects of omega-3 fatty acids and stem cell and tissue engineering technology.
