Regener8 Annual Conference 2012 'Regenerative Therapies
the Road to the Clinic’
27th September 2012
The Regener8 Annual Conference 2012 is a one day meeting with a focus on the translation and commercialisation of regenerative therapies.
Following the sucess of last year's annual conference in Manchester's The Lowry Theatre and Art Gallery, we are delighted to announce that this year's conference will see the first time this important event in the UK RegenMed sector's calendar is held in Newcastle upon Tyne.
The Regener8 Annual Conference 2012 is a one day meeting with a focus on the translation and commercialisation of regenerative therapies. Delegates will hear from respected industry and academic experts and see how Regener8 is promoting translation in the region with a showcase of Regener8-funded projects.
This day is aimed at academics, clinicians and industry representatives who are involved in the field of regenerative medicine. We welcome existing Regener8 members as well as new representatives from the wider regenerative medicine community that would like to engage with like-minded delegates.
The theme for 2012 will be focussed around progressing regenerative therapies into the clinic, with keynote speakers from companies who are doing this successfully in the UK and beyond.
