L'Académie française se prononce en faveur du terme "régénératrice"
Suite à une question transmise à L'Académie française par le Dr Auger, ce dernier a reçu une réponse indiquant qu'elle se prononce en faveur de l'adjectif "régénératrice" de préférence à "régénérative".

Le message disait ceci : "Les deux adjectifs « régénérateur, -trice » et « régénératif, -ive » existent en français, et possèdent le même sens (qui régénère). Le premier est bien plus courant dans la langue générale, attesté dans tous les dictionnaires d’usage, et ainsi répertorié par le Dictionnaire de l’Académie française. Si le nombre d’occurrences de l’expression « médecine régénérative » sur l’internet est plus élevé que celui de l’expression « médecine régénératrice » (44000 et 28000 respectivement), c’est assurément sous l’influence de l’anglais. L’Académie française recommande donc l’emploi de « régénératrice »."

CIHR Gives Université Laval's LOEX Inaugural Synapse Award for Mentorship
Researchers at Université Laval's Laboratoire d'Organogénèse
Expérimentale (LOEX), including the CIHR-funded Drs. François A. Auger,
Lucie Germain, Véronique Moulin, François Berthod and Francine Goulet,
actively try to transform the work they conduct in tissue engineering and
regenerative medicine into something that's both accessible and motivational.
These researchers have spoken about their work at approximately
20 different high schools and colleges, judged at science fairs (including
Expo-Sciences), participated at public educational events (such as
Lab-oratoire public) and allowed students the chance to visit the LOEX
laboratories.
With the high school lectures and LOEX laboratory visits, over
1,500 students have learned about health research work that exists in tissue
reconstruction of skin, cartilage, blood vessels, bones or corneas. Through
Expo-Sciences, the biggest scientific competition for youth in Quebec, LOEX
researchers have also supervised the development of a prize-winning student
project (regarding skin transplantation among burn victims) and served as
judges at the regional and provincial levels. At "Lab-oratoire public", the
LOEX researchers successfully participated at a two-day conference designed
for the general public - more specifically high school students. The
conference is full of creative kiosks that provide information about how
specific areas of health research work can be beneficial for the health of
Canadians.
In the near future, LOEX plans to advance their educational presence by
appearing at different career days as well as improve the quality of computer
software material related to the laboratory that is used by high school
students outside of presentations and exhibitions.

Dre Lucie Germain Winner of the Quebec YWCA Women of Distinction Awards
On May 1st, 2007, Quebec YWCA gave out its Women of Distinction Awards 2007. These are awarded yearly to Quebec women who have distinguished themselves through their personal accomplishments, social involvement, and contribution to the cause of women. The names of the 10 winners "Femmes de mérite 2007" were revealed. YWCA Women of Distinction Awards honour individuals whose outstanding activities and achievements contribute to the well-being and future of our community. The Awards also honour businesses and organizations that support the wellness and diverse needs of their employees. Recognized nationally as one of the most prestigious awards for women, 2007 is the 9th year of the YWCA of Quebec Women of Distinction Awards.

Lucie Germain, Ph.D., scientific director at the LOEX (Laboratory of Experimental Organogenesis), holder of the Canadian Research Chair on Stem Cells and Tissue Engineering, and Full Professor at the Department of Surgery, Laval University, earned the Award in the Sciences and Technology category. The award was presented by Anne Giroux from Hydro-Quebec.

A unique symposium on tissue engineering
The LOEX is presently celebrating its twentieth anniversary (1985-2005).
Befittingly, a scientific symposium is to be held on September 23-24-25, 2005,
which will give all participants the opportunity to gain a general historical and
evolutionary overview of the field of tissue engineering and regenerative
biomedicine.
Accordingly the presentation of various world renowned speakers will provide an
original and fascinating view of past achievements, present endeavours and the
possibilities of future successes for tissue-engineered products.
This field of biomedical research has evolved through three major stages. The first
was characterized by the establishment of numerous methods to create various
tissue and organ substitutes. These approaches are used, even to this day, in an
ever expanding number of applications, both clinical (in vivo) and experimental (in
vitro). The second stage was spurred by a better understanding of embryonic and
post natal human stem cells. The third one has seen an exciting worldwide effort to
apply the acquired knowledge to solve complex and important clinical problems.
Thus, we may now be closer to fulfilling the initial promises of tissue engineering
research: REPAIR, REPLACE and REGENERATE human tissues and organs.
Thus it is our pleasure to invite all investigators interested in the field of tissue
engineering and regenerative biomedicine to attend our symposium for an in-depth
analysis of the evolutionary life cycle of this scientific endeavour. We will strive to
foster a lively exchange between scientists from various disciplines, fields of
expertise, backgrounds and countries.

Dre Lucie Germain Winner of the Quality of Life Award
Outstanding research and excellent researchers are two of the five outcome categories that Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) has identified as being critical to its success. To recognize investigators-initiated research efforts with a focus on diseases and conditions of the musculoskeletal system, the Institute of Musculoskeletal Health and Arthritis (IMHA) created the annual "Quality of Life Awards".

Dr. Lucie Germain, Canada Research Chair in Stem Cells and Tissue Engineering at the Université Laval, has initiated a study that will examine regeneration of human skin and the mechanisms of post-natal stem cell differentiation. A long-term objective of the study will be to understand how stem cells can be used to effectively facilitate gene therapy, and may ultimately lead to new approaches to treat hereditary diseases
