It is an exciting time to be part of the stem cell and regenerative medicine industry. In an industry that promises to transform healthcare and the lives of patients with poorly met medical need, cell therapy developers are jostling for position to lead this pioneering industry.
The World Stem Cells & Regenerative Medicine Congress is a very strongly attended "one-stop shop" for stakeholders to make vital connections with potential partners and learn about the cutting edge progress being made in the field.
But please don't take our word for it, after a hugely successful meeting in London (May, 2012) that saw an unprecedented number of 1-2-1 partnering sessions and the beginnings of some fruitful collaborations, we collected a number of feedback testimonials from delegates, speakers and sponsors alike.
"Bridging the gap between stem cell inventions, their developments and commercialisations is what makes this event key moment in the year. It provides a window on what is occurring in Europe in regenerative medicine and efficiently links with the rest of the industry on a global level"
Managing Director, NxR Biotechnologies GmbH
"The presentations and discussions covered a variety of angles: corporate, start-ups and regulatory perspective. The conference also brought together a large group of leaders in the field, hence was a great place to meet people and colleagues"
President & CEO, Gamida Cell
"This well organized conference featured the progress of the most advanced regenerative medicines companies and allowed ample time to network with senior executives in all of these companies to initiate potential collaborations"
Scientific Advisor, Medistem
"In a fast moving field, with many alternative conferences, this is definitely the one meeting not to miss. In a packed but do-able agenda, it covers all areas from basic science to reimbursement and health care policy and everything in between"
Chief Executive & CSO, Intercytex
"I was very much impressed with the speed networking session where I was able to make contacts and share my thoughts with the esteemed speakers. In my opinion this meeting was one of the best stem cell meetings that I attended and was extremely well organized with high standards."
Director, Stem Cell Instrumentation Foundry
"There was a very clear increase in the number of participants and the congress is now becoming the clear leader in the space. We look forward to participating again next year."
Managing Director & CEO, TiGenix
Work has already commenced on the organisation of the 2013 World Stem Cells & Regenerative Medicine Congress again taking place in London on the 21st-23rd May 2013. Innovations for the 2013 congress will see a dedicated Gene Therapy Track and a Cord Blood Track to create focused sessions in these growing areas of the industry. Should you be interested in speaking at the 2013 World Stem Cells & Regenerative Medicine Congress, let us know here. Alternatively, you can be one of the first to receive the 2013 brochure by letting us know if your interest here.
Feel free to comment and share your views on what should be the major talking points and be part of the debate all year round.
