Center Membership

Organogenesis unites research in the clinical, basic, translational, and applied sciences with a common goal:

To understand the basic mechanisms by which organs and tissues are formed and maintained, and to use this knowledge to create long-lasting artificial organs, improved stem cell therapies and effective organ transplantation systems that will correct acquired and genetic human diseases. 


The CFO was established in 1995 and now includes over 130 faculty members that come from 28 departments across 5 schools and colleges of the University of Michigan (School of Medicine, College of Literature, Science & the Arts, Dental School, and College of Engineering, School of Public Health). Our reach amongst the entire medical campus shows the truly interdisciplinary nature of our program.  We actively seek new members and would particularly like to extend our membership outside of the Medical School.
