2nd INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON THE FUTURE OF REGENERATIVE MEDICINE
Ostuni (Italy) – 3-5 october 2018
Regenerative Medicine is a very important area of translational research based on the perspective of repairing damaged tissues. Since age and degenerative diseases modify the tissue regenerative capacity, the ability of endogenous and exogenous stem cells to maintain and restore tissue function has been extensively investigated. However, the complexity of stem cell behavior and their adaptive capability still needs the knowledge to be further expanded and novel technologies for their application to the clinical setting to be invented.
In this perspective, the International Network of Tissue Engineering, the Centre for Regenerative Medicine of Rome and the St. Boniface Hospital of Winnipeg are fully committed to contribute to the advancement of stem cell research and application, and to the formation of future generations of scientists expert in the field. A first exchange of ideas has taken place in a meeting held in Tuscania (Italy), in October 2017, in which more than 70 scientists/clinicians from all over the world shared their experience, expertise and views on the future of stem cells. The huge success has prompted to organize a second joint meeting to be held in Ostuni (Italy) on 3-5 october 2018. The aim of this Second Symposium is to provide a comprehensive overview of various aspects of stem cell biology and application. This interactive event will offer the latest and most significant developments in basic and clinical research. Furthermore, opportunities will be provided to develop significant interactions among researchers and private companies in order to establish a concrete platform for technology development in the field of regenerative medicine
