Oxford Global Stem Cell Congress 2013

  • Conference Call
  • Oxford Global Conferences Ltd are proud to present our Stem Cell Congress, to be held on the 4th & 5th November 2013 at the Copthorne Tara Hotel London Kensington, United Kingdom.

    Experts predict that the stem cell industry will to be worth over $5 billion by 2014, reflecting the enormous potential of stem cell technologies in the pharmaceutical industry. Over this two day conference our esteemed experts will offer invaluable insights into the latest stem cell applications in translational research as well as exploring advances in bioprocessing and engineering technologies.

    On day one our experts will explore the latest applications of stem cells in discovery and early development. Our renowned speakers will discuss methods of improving drug screening efficiency with stem cell models. Presentations will include the use of pluripotent stem cells in disease modelling, the application of iPSCs in translational research as well as stem cell based systems for gene expression profiling.

    Day two will focus on overcoming bioprocessing and manufacturing challenges presented by stem cells and iPS cells. Our industry leaders will discuss promising strategies to meet cell manufacturing quality and quantity requirements. Delegates will also hear about the latest advances in reprogramming techniques and methods to ensure controlled stem cell growth.

    This event will attract over 200 senior-level decision makers working in stem cell research, stem cell bioprocessing and stem cell manufacturing. The Stem Cell Congress is part of the highly successful Oxford Global Proteins Series.
