NVGCT Spring Symposium March 15 & 16, 2018
Keynote Speaker: Gabriela Pellegrini
Professor Gabriela Pellegrini’s research focuses on the therapeutic application of cultivated adult epithelial stem cells, with or without genetic correction. She is particularly famous for her work on limbal stem cells capable of corneal restoration. Her research was pivotal for the development of Holoclar, a stem cell treatment used in the eye to treat adult patients with damage to the eye surface caused by burns including chemical burns. Holoclar received conditional market authorization from the EMA in 2015. This was the first approval of an Advanced Therapy Medicinal Product containing stem cells.
