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

technology plays today in the sense of personalized
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
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.
