About the International Society for Cellular Therapy
Established in 1992, the International Society for Cellular Therapy (ISCT) is a global society of clinicians, researchers, regulators, technologists and industry partners with a shared vision to translate cellular therapy into safe and effective therapies to improve patients' lives worldwide.  ISCT is the global leader focused on pre-clinical and translational aspects of developing cell-based therapeutics, thereby advancing scientific research into innovative treatments for patients. ISCT offers a unique collaborative environment that addresses three key areas of translation: Academia, Regulatory and Commercialization. Through strong relationships with global regulatory agencies, academic institutions and industry partners, ISCT drives the advancement of research into standard of care.  Comprised of over 1300 cell therapy experts across five geographic regions and representation from over 50 countries, ISCT members are part of a global community of peers, thought leaders and organizations invested in cell therapy translation.

About the World Advanced Therapies & Regenerative Medicine Congress
12 years ago when the World Stem Cells Congress was launched, the stem cells sector was one of scientific interest.  Focusing on the challenges of how to transform these little precursor cells eventually into new tissues and organs. The first stem cells conference was relatively small with only 80 people attending the first event, but we knew we were on the verge of something huge and exciting.  In May 2017 the newly named World Advanced Therapies & Regenerative Medicine Congress, will bring together 800+ attendees and explore the rapidly developing world of ATMPs (Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products). From process development to clinical translation this congress will bring you the most exciting case studies and new data. Experts in every area will help you tackle the process and regulatory hurdles of developing these new therapeutic formats all the way through manufacture and into the clinic.
