2016 International Cord Blood Symposium
Register today to attend the premier meeting for the cord blood and regenerative medicine industry, the 14th International Cord Blood Symposium, which brings together the top experts from around the world. Our distinguished faculty includes renowned clinicians, researchers, executives and technical professionals from the cord blood banking industry, hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, and pioneers in regenerative medicine.
New this year, the Symposium offers workshops and concurrent sessions allowing participants the opportunity to collaborate with colleagues and explore practical issues in a collegial yet interactive and technical setting. This intimate format offers additional opportunities for networking.
Both the experienced CEO and the new technologist will leave with actionable new clinical results, technical improvements, and formulas for success such as expanded service lines, new processing methods and creative ways to expand their market. Plenary sessions highlight exciting new data in cord blood expansion, the latest applications of perinatal cells and cord derived tissue and clinical trial results of cord blood in regenerative medicine including potential new indications for therapy. A special workshop on Saturday offers both collection personnel and obstetricians a critical refresher on current best practices for umbilical cord blood collection.
Top abstracts will be awarded complimentary registration to the symposium, $250 to assist with travel, and the opportunity for an oral presentation during the Symposium.
1. Describe the latest outcomes in the clinical application of cord blood in hematopoietic stem cell transplantation and regenerative therapies for expanding applications including neurological conditions.
2. Critique and implement the most current methodologies for the isolation and cryopreservation of perinatal stem cells, mesenchymal stromal cells and cord derived tissue.
3. Evaluate and critique methods and outcome results for potency assays, cord blood unit selection, and isolation of mesenchymal stromal cells.
