International Conference on Cell Therapy and Tissue Engineering: Regenerative Medicine “New Developments”

Estonian Cell Therapy Cluster and Estonian Regenerative Medicine Association are organizing an International Conference on Cell Therapy and Tissue Engineering: Regenerative Medicine “New Developments” held on 8th-9th of June in Tallinn.

As a newly adopted tradition Estonian Cell Therapy Cluster and Estonian Regenerative Medicine Association are organizing the 2016 Conference. World´s leading experts in research, clinical medicine and legal regulations, as well Estonian specialists, will present their opinion and viewpoints.

Such names like Ralf Sanzenbacher,Paula Salmikangas, Dariusz Sladowski, Jaan Feldmann, Hele Everaus, Andrus Loog and Toivo Maimets are few of the experts stepping up with their presentations in the conference.
The two pillars of RM, cell therapy and tissue engineering, may play even a more essential role in the future than gene technology plays today in the sense of personalized medicine.
Autologous cell therapy, as one of the branches of RM, represents personalized medicine in its most pure and essential way. It means that the donor and recipient lay in the same human body.

In order to be successful in RM, all involved parties in the process must cooperate:
clinicians, who are worried about the dead-end-situation in today´s conventional treatment methods, with researchers, who develop cell therapy, with regulators, who are confused whether cell therapy should be considered a new drug in use or simply a new treatment option. And with back-up forces like pharmaceutical companies, IT specialists, venture capitalists, who support the process. We can´t be successful, if those four parties won`t speak to each other in one auditorium.

The Conference in Tallinn is one of the attempts to bring those four parties together around one table. But we can´t go too much into specific details – it is the first complex approach, where we attempt to stay understandable to different parties around the table. Only after finding common ground among the parties can we dig deeper and thus become more detail-specific.
