SAN ANTONIO, May 28, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Registration opens today at WorldStemCellSummit.com for the 2014 World Stem Cell Summit, December 3-5, in San Antonio, Texas. The Summit is the regenerative medicine community's best networking event, pulling together a diverse, interdisciplinary mix of experts: researchers, industry leaders, clinicians, hospital administrators, regulators, philanthropists, venture capitalists, economic development officers, journalists, lawyers and patients. This year's Summit incorporates sophisticated conference partnering technology, so attendees can schedule the face-to-face meetings that lead to international collaborations and, ultimately, will develop translational, B2B, and funding solutions.
More than 200 speakers and panelists will discuss the latest scientific discoveries, business models, translational issues, best practices, investment opportunities and legal and regulatory solutions. 1,500 attendees from 40 nations are expected to attend.
Bernard Siegel, Executive Director of Genetics Policy Institute (GPI) and co-chair of the World Stem Cell Summit said, "In 2014, the Summit is taking conference partnering to the highest level by providing a new state-of-art partnering system by JUJAMA. The more potential partners that meet and the more connections that are made will accelerate the development of the global cures and treatments we are all working for."
