6th Utrecht Stem Cell Conference 2018
Dear clinicians and researchers,
A few weeks ago, we announced the sixth Utrecht Stem Cell Conference – Regenerative Medicine Cardiology which will be held on the 16th of February at the University Hall in Utrecht. As mentioned we are proud to have Prof Dr. Francisco Fernández-Avilés as a keynote speaker. He is the initiator of the transnational alliance for regenerative therapies in cardiovascular syndromes (TACTICS), and recently established the start of a new working group within the European Society of Cardiology (ESC). We promised an interactive program with distinguished speakers and are delighted to announce a great line-up of front leaders in the field of regenerative medicine. Profs Dr. Robert Passier and Ulrich Martin will demonstrate us the latest developments on organ-on-a-chip technologies and the use of iPS technologies. Prof. Dr. Jos Malda and Steven Chamuleau are leaders in the field for the use of biomaterials and biofabrication technologies and the direct application in daily cardiac practices, highlighting all the possibilities but also their current limitations. Finally, we are honored to have Prof. Dr. Susmita Sahoo from Mount Sinai (NY) who will expand on the use of extracellular vesicles for cardiac repair. As a special day closure, Prof. Dr. Joost Sluijter will give his inaugural lecture to accept his chair as Professor of Cellular and translational Cardiology. We hope to welcome you all the 16th of February with this great national and international line-up of distinguished speakers, and are looking forward to an interactive and inspiring day.
Prof Dr. Steven A. J. Chamuleau Prof Dr. Joost Sluijter Prof Dr. Eva van Rooij Prof Dr. Pieter A. Doevendans
