A stem Cell day with Regentime

26 Oct 2015

Master II CSMR students accompanied by Dr. Hamade Aline and Dr. Najjar Fadia experienced a practical stem cells day organised by Regentime under the supervision of the Neurosurgeon, Dr. Abi Chahine Nassim.

This journey included 3 main stations in the North Region:

  • Bone Marrow aspiration for a future autologous stem cells transplantation for a patient suffering from Parkinson's disease.
  • Injection of autologous Bone Marrow Mononuclear cells for a paraplegic patient with a spinal cord injury.
  • Autologous Bone Marrow Mononuclear cells injection in the pineal artery for a patient having unilateral fibrosis.
  • Cath-lab workshop with the biomedical Engineer Mr. Ibrahim Kleimeh

Afterwards, a visit to Dr. Abi Chahine clinic allowed the students to discuss the observed cases.

Finally, this trip was enriched by a friendly lunch at the Black Horse restaurant, Amyoun.

Students gained new and rich information on the applied sector of their Masters II following this fructuous day.
