New technologies, therapies and medicines are emerging: this includes regenerative medicine, which encompasses gene therapy, cell therapy and tissue-engineered products, advanced diagnostics tools such as new genetic technologies, and the development of nanomedicines, with the purpose of more personalized treatments.
The conference will bring together world-renowned experts from the fields of cell and gene therapy, molecular targeted therapies, advanced therapeutic and diagnostic technologies to illustrate the ongoing research and to drive scientific knowledge in the area of translational research and early clinical applications. Specifically, it will shed light into the development phases, clinical trials, and regulatory aspects of these therapies, particularly in the field of Oncology, Hematology, Immunology, Inflammatory and Autoimmune disorders, to engender better and more personalized treatment options, and ultimately bring important health benefits.
Leading experts from Middle East, Europe and US will address different aspects of these topic themes.
