After 12 successful editions, the World Stem Cells & Regenerative Medicine Congress was renamed World Advanced Therapies & Regenerative Medicine Congress in 2017.
In 2016, this global pioneering event brought together over 600 attendees from the healthcare, research, investment and biotechindustries from around the world to discuss the latest ground-breaking scientific discoveries, therapeutic breakthroughs, cell and gene therapies and regenerative medicine. It was held at the Business Design Centre in London, together with the 2nd annual Cord Blood World Europe Congress and the inaugural World Precision Medicine Congress.
In 2016, event highlights included presentations from:
George Freeman (Minister for Life Sciences, UK Parliament), Sven Kili (VP & Head of Gene Therapy Development, GSK), Paula Salmikangas (CAT chair, EMA), Bruce Levine (Professor of Cancer Gene Therapy, UPenn), Margo Roberts (CSO, Kite) and James Nobel (CEO, Adaptimmune)
; along with world-class speaker faculty of over 180 speakers from the world’s leading pharma, biotech, and academic institutions, a full exhibition floor featuring the most advanced technologies in this sector, and a significant increase in the total number of attendees.
12 years ago when we launched the World Stem Cells Congress, the stem cells sector was one of scientific interest. Focusing on the challenges of how to transform these little precursor cells eventually into new tissues and organs. The first stem cells conference was relatively small with only 80 people attending the first event, but we knew we were on the verge of something huge and exciting.
In May 2017 the newly named World Advanced Therapies & Regenerative Medicine Congress, will bring together 800+ attendees and explore the rapidly developing world of ATMPs (Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products)
. From process development to clinical translation this congress will bring you the most exciting case studies and new data. Experts in every area will help you tackle the process and regulatory hurdles of developing these new therapeutic formats all the way through manufacture and into the clinic.
Taking place alongside the co-located 2nd annual World Precision Medicine Congress and 3rd annual Cord Blood World Europe, and hosting 250+ speakers, 4 tracks of content across the 3 days enabling networking opportunities with over 1000 leading industry professionals.
We look forward to welcoming you to London on 17th – 19th May.
