The University of Georgia (UGA) has introduced a groundbreaking Ph.D. program in regenerative bioscience, in collaboration with the Regenerative Bioscience Center and the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. UGA is the first institution in Georgia to offer a formalized doctoral program in this field, aiming to foster interdisciplinary research and entrepreneurial skills. This initiative aligns with the demand in Georgia’s life sciences industry, with a 150% increase in new job creation by bioscience companies.

The program will launch in spring 2024, offering advanced interdisciplinary training in biomanufacturing, biomaterials, gene therapy, biomedical imaging, and more. UGA expects to attract students from their undergraduate regenerative medicine program. In addition, the program focuses on non-academic careers by providing entrepreneurship and technology commercialization training. UGA’s Regenerative Bioscience Center will oversee course instruction and career mentoring, collaborating with industry partners, making Georgia a hub for innovation and biomedical advancements.
