Future LRMN Events
LRMN & Cell Therapy Catapult
The LRMN is working together again with the Cell Therapy Catapult to hold a second event in early Autumn 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.
More information on this event will be provided in due course, including the finalised date and the programme. Invitations will be sent out by email to the LRMN mailing list as usual.
LRMN & Miltenyi
The LRMN is also working together again with Miltenyi Biotec to hold another event in Autumn/Winter 2014.
Miltenyi provide products and services that advance biomedical research and cellular therapy. Regarding stem cell research, currently Mitenyi’s emphasis is on developing tools for the isolation, analysis, and culture of embryonic stem cells, induced pluripotent stem cells, tissue (e.g. neural, cardiac and hepatic) stem cells and cancer stem cells. The latest company developments focus on re-programming, directed differentiation and enrichment of the resulting differentiated cells.
More information on this event, including a finalised date and the programme will be given in due course, with invitations sent out to the LRMN mailing list as usual.
