The LRMN is working together again with the Cell Therapy Catapult to hold a second event in Summer 2014.

The Catapult is a centre of excellence in the translation of cell therapies from "bench to bedside". Its vision is for the UK to be a global leader in the development, delivery and commercialisation of cell therapy, making it a location for business start-up and growth. Based in London at Guy's Hospital, the centre plans to work in collaboration with others to take products through early clinical trials, providing business, clinical, technical, manufacturing and regulatory expertise and to facilitate access to the NHS.
