Bioprocessing Technologies in Stem Cell Research:

Perspectives on Process Design, Scale-Up, and Product Safety

Chaired by Prof. Joaquim M. S. Cabral
Instituto Superior Técnico, University of Lisbon, Portugal

The Stem Cell Community Day connects researchers from all over the world to discuss recent advances in the stem cells field, with a special focus on controlled cultivation in bioreactors.

Stem cell-based technologies lay the basis for pioneering approaches in regenerative medicine, drug screening, and toxicology testing. Their commercial use requires reliable methods for the large-scale production of stem cells in consistent quality.

At our 1st Stem Cell Community Day we brought together experts from industry and academia, to discuss recent achievements, challenges, and chances in stem cell bioprocessing for research and commercial manufacturing.

 Confirmed speakers:

  • Dr. Karen Coopman | Loughborough University, UK
  • Dr. Robert Zweigerdt | Hannover Medical School, Germany
  • Prof. Sean Palecek | University of Wisconsin - Madison, United States
  • Dr. Qasim Rafiq | University College London, UK
  • Anja Ramme, M.Sc. | TissUse GmbH, Germany
  • Dr. Carlos Rodrigues | Instituto Superior Técnico, University of Lisbon, Portugal
  • Ricardo Baptista | Cell and Gene Therapy Catapult, UK
  • Arie Reijerkerk, Ph.D. | Ncardia BV, The Netherlands
  • Elisabeth A. Lipke, Ph.D. | Auburn University, United States

 

 Thank you very much for being part of a very successful 2nd Stem Cell Community Day 2018!

We would cordially like to thank all speakers, participants and abstract authors - we hope to see you at the next Stem Cell Community Day.
