23 April- 24 April 2020 (2 day course)
Almo Collegio Borromeo
M Gnecchi, Pavia; HJ Ankersmit, Vienna
The 2 day programme will include keynote presentations, a young investigator session and poster presentation.
Delegates: €200 inclusive of VAT
Industry: €275 inclusive of VAT
Students: €50 inclusive of VAT
Fee includes lunch and refreshments on 23 and 24 April.
Cardio-thoracic surgeons and Cardiologists interested in translational science, professionals involved with regulatory affairs in applied research and the translation of ATMP and secretome based regenerative products to the bedside. Basic Scientists, Biologists, Biotechnologists, Residents and Fellows of all surgical and clinical specialities, particularly the youngest.
Participants will learn the latest advancements in the field of cell and molecular therapy for tissue repair. The use of specific cell populations (ATMPs) and cell derived molecules (such as proteins and microvescicles) for the treatment of different diseases will be discussed. Also, an update on cell and tissue engineering developments will be presented.
A further objective of this symposium is the description of the complex interplay between regulatory affairs and basic/translational science in order to transfer scientific research to the patients.
