The Cord Blood World Europe conference in London is just around the corner and Save the Cord Foundation is pleased to announce that we will be participating again this year. Our team will be leading a unique roundtable/workshop called “Educational Approaches” building on themes of collaboration presented by key speakers at this event.
The Cord Blood World Europe conference has evolved over the years into a dynamic platform for collaboration and discussion amongst the cord blood industry’s leading experts. Each year the event welcomes numerous researchers and visionaries from all over the world who have one thing in common. . . cord blood. Born out of demand from feedback over the years Cord Blood World Europe aims to bring together public and private banks, clinicians, researchers, regulatory bodies and solution providers to tackle the challenges and opportunities facing the industry. The conference focuses on the continued need to increase the number of parents who privately store or donate cord blood, reduce costs, increase utilisation, advance regenerative applications and improve quality.
Cord Blood World Europe 2017
17-18 May 2017
Business Design Center, London
In 2017, there will be a special emphasis placed on new collaborations developing in this maturing industry. The conference will serve as a springboard for discussions both publicly and privately on how to move forward globally with research and current cellular therapies using cord blood. In addition to lectures from renowned cord blood pioneers such as Dr. Colleen Delaney of NoHLA Therapeutics/Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center and Dr. Joanne Kurtzberg of Duke University, a series of panel discussions with cord blood experts from both the public and private arenas will allow participants to dig deeper into various topics and seek real world answers to challenges they face as a cord blood bank, a researcher, an oncologist, a charity, etc.
Just to name a few of the presentations/discussions we are looking forward to. . .
- Keynote presentations from Dr. Colleen Delaney from NoHLA/Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center and Professor Vanderson Rocha of Eurocord
- Research focused presentations from Dr. Joanne Kurtzberg of Duke University and Dr. Jaap Boelens of UMC Utrecht
- Panel discussion on “The Advantages of Banking Other Tissue, and the Effect This Will Have on the Cord Blood Industry”
- Panel discussion on “Cord Blood Expansion: How Close Are We to a Solution for this Bottleneck?”
- Break out session on “Patient Advocacy” highlighting differences in US and UK mandates
