Fisher BioServices is proud to announce our attendance at this year's World Stem Cell Summit, to be held in San Antonio, Texas, from December 3rd through the 5th, concurrent with the RegMed Capital Conference (RMCC). The Summit is the single largest international meeting of stakeholders in stem cell therapies and regenerative medicine, with discussions regarding research, advocacy, regulatory law, and funding, as well as advances in disease-specific areas. More than 1,400 attendees are expected from around the world.


This year's event represents the tenth consecutive international stem cell conference: the event originated in an international Stem Cell Action Conference held at the University of California-Berkeley in June 2004, becoming the "World Stem Cell Summit" in 2007. The tremendous growth in stem cell research and regenerative medicine over the past decade is reflected in the appearance of new topics in this year's agenda, which include stem cell research in space, regenerative medicine in dentistry and cosmetic applications, and stem cells and mental health.   

This year, Dan O'Donnell, our Area Director of Cell Therapy Logistics, will not only be in attendance, but also will be moderating a panel: Biobanking Challenges and Strategies for Developing Cell-based Biologics Towards Clinical and Commercialization.Master cell bank storage requirements can be more complicated than expected and is only the beginning of the variable to be addressed in maintaining molecular integrity in stem cell research and development. The panelists will be providing their expertise on the topic, coming from both commercial and academic perspectives.
