Cord blood is truly global. It always has been. Yet, the role of cord blood in modern medicine has changed dramatically over the years. Join us at the World Advanced Therapies & Regenerative Medicine Congress 2018 in London this May to learn how the industry has changed and how cord blood is influencing the medicine of tomorrow.
Save the Cord Foundation will be joining an incredible line up of speakers who will be presenting a variety of topics including:
Here are just a few of the featured speakers we are looking forward to hearing (in order of the agenda):
View the agenda: DAY 1 and DAY 2
This conference has grown significantly over the years yet continues to provide a unique opportunity to hear and meet with cord blood experts from around the world in an intimate setting. Unlike other conferences, the cord blood tract is run in parallel with other tracts focused other areas of medicine which gives attendees and speakers an opportunity to expand their knowledge base and really explore the impact of cord blood within a greater context. Likewise, the cord blood tract routinely welcomes attendees from outside of the cord blood industry thanks to the format of this conference. Over the years, this crossover has prompted a wonderful exchange of information and networks.

We are proud to announce the 3rd Annual Arizona Cord Blood Conference: Advancing Innovation. Join us for this free live event on April 13th, 2018.
Are you a parent interested in learning more about cord blood?
Would you like to understand how cord blood is currently used and how it may be used in the future?
Are you a doctor, nurse or midwife who would like to learn about this medical resource from world renowned cord blood experts in order to better understand how to advise your patients?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then we highly recommend that you register for the upcoming Arizona Cord Blood Conference 2018.
The 2018 conference is building on 3 years of success and a growing interest in cord blood from parents and the medical community. Over the past year, we have seen exciting advances not just in cord blood research but also cord blood donation programs. The industry is maturing and the general public is beoming more aware of the possible uses for cord blood today as well as tomorrow. The speakers at this year’s conference will reflect this progress in numerous ways:
• Dr. Wise Young (W. M. Keck Center for Collaborative Neuroscience at Rutgers University) will speak about his groundbreaking research using donated umbilical cord blood to treat spinal cord injuries.
• Dr. Juliette Barker (Sloan Kettering Cancer Center) will give her insight on how unrelated donor cord blood can be used in the treatment of acute leukemia or myelodysplasia with reduced intensity chemo.
• Dr. Filippo Milano (Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center) will compare stem cell sources (including cord blood) for stem cell transplants and how to improve outcomes and costs for cord blood recipients.
• Dr. Michael Chez (Sutter Institute for Medical Research) will speak about his recent publication “Safety and Observations from a Placebo-Controlled, Crossover Study to Assess Use of Autologous Umbilical Cord Blood Stem Cells to Improve Symptoms in Children with Autism.”
• Dr. Maria Manriquez (University of Arizona College of Medicine – Phoenix / Maricopa Integrated Health System) will speak about how to implement a cord blood donation program from the administrative perspective.
• Dr. Brian Freed (ClinImmune Labs – University of Colorado) will give his insight on the current status of cord blood transplantation as well as the future of cord blood transplantation as a viable stem cell therapy. He will also identify the legal, regulatory and financial barriers to cord blood banking success.
• Diane Paradise (Cancer Survivor and Cord Blood Recipient) will speak about her long battle against Hodgkins Lymphoma. After years of treatments, Diane was told there were no other options. She learned about cord blood and it ultimately saved her life.
• Lyla Edgington (Cord Blood Recipient - Hurler's Syndrome Survivor) and her family will speak about young Lyla's struggle with Hurler's Syndrome and how a cord blood donation has given her a second chance at life.
For students interested in possible STEM careers, this conference will provide a unique opportunity to learn directly from those in the cord blood industry and discover new opportunities that are emerging thanks to exciting research and current uses for cord blood stem cells.
For health professionals, you will have the opportunity to meet with leading scientists in this field and understand how your practice could immediately have impact or benefit from cord blood collections. As a medical practitioner, you can also earn CME credits at this free conference.
For hospital administrators and policy makers, this conference will be key to better understanding the current status of the cord blood industry and how we can work together to improve it.

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. . .
Exclusive Roundtable/Workshop: EDUCATIONAL APPROACHES
Building on themes of collaboration, Save the Cord Foundation will lead a special roundtable/workshop called “Educational Approaches.” This roundtable/workshop will focus on the art of communication and education within the industry. Our team will work with participants in small group sessions to develop educational messages for various audiences. All participants will be given the option to feature their educational messages on our website at Save the Cord Foundation along with a backlink to their website where their teams will be encouraged to build on this message. The goal is to start a series of conversations across the globe, targeting a variety of audiences and building on what is presented at Cord Blood World Europe 2017. PLACES ARE LIMITED.
Please note, places are very limited for the “Educational Approaches” roundtable/workshop with Save the Cord Foundation. Please reserve your spot for the conference and the roundtable via the Terrapin website: http://www.terrapinn.com/conference/cord-blood-world-europe/index.stm
