News Jun 16, 2015
The World Conference on Regenerative Medicine 2015 will take place from 21- 23 October 2015 in Leipzig, Germany.
In October 2015 Leipzig again will be the central meeting place for international scientists and clinicians to talk about recent developments in regenerative Medicine. The meeting will, as in past years, encompass a broad range of topics in regenerative medicine from stem cell technologies to cell therapy, biomaterials and tissue engineering. We are proud to present highly regarded speakers e.g. Irving Weissman, Oliver Brüstle, Katarina Le Blanc, and Simon Hoerstrup. As in the years before, the organizers expect approximately 1,000 visitors.
Scientists, clinicians and companies with an R&D focus can still submit their abstracts on the conference website http://www.wcrm-leipzig.com from now until 24 June 2015.
Following the positive experiences of 2013, the WCRM places a special emphasis on the next generation of scientists: Special non-topic-restricted “PhD sessions” have been reserved for young scientists and PhD students to present their work to an international audience. A discounted student rate rounds off the WCRM’s young scientist program.
Not only the dense scientific program but also the versatile evening program with a Get Together, Poster Party and Social Evening Event offers participants the possibility to network with colleagues from science and business.
