ISSCR 2022 Boston International Symposium
Given the rapid spread of the omicron variant, the ISSCR and the Boston International Symposium organizing committee are rescheduling the meeting, Translating Discoveries, to 17-19 November 2022. Registration is open. In person and virtual attendance options are available.
Join us for the ISSCR 2022 Boston International Symposium on Cell Manufacturing and Commercialization “Translating Pluripotent Stem Cell Discoveries to the Clinic: Preclinical, Manufacturing, and Regulatory Strategies for Success,” which will take place at the Boston Marriott Cambridge Boston, MA from 17-19 November 2022.
The meeting will bring together international academic and commercial scientists with expertise in the preclinical, clinical, and regulatory phases to discuss the critical processes and strategies in the successful development of PSC-derived therapies. Sessions will cover some of the latest thinking and approaches for selecting the cell line, characterizing the product and manufacturing considerations, managing the immune system, and working with regulators throughout the process. We hope you can join us in one of the world’s hubs of biotechnology.
