Anthony Atala combines the roles of surgeon and researcher in regenerative medicine, allowing him to stay mindful of why his work is important. He talks to LSIPR about his twin professions.
While most people in the life sciences industry pick one vocation, Anthony Atala is one of the few who has successfully forged two careers in one field. Atala is a practising surgeon and a researcher in the area of regenerative medicine at the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM), a US-based institute for translating scientific discovery into clinical therapies.
Atala tells LSIPR that his twin roles as surgeon and researcher help him improve in each pursuit.
“Treating patients keeps me focused on the long-term results of our regenerative medicine research to bring healing therapies and technologies to fruition,” he says.
