Perinatal stem cells: the future of regenerative medicine

Written by RegMedNet

Perinatal stem cells are a rapidly developing field showing promise in regenerative medicine and tissue engineering. Kyle Cetrulo, President and Founder, International Perinatal Stem Cell Society, explains how and why you should stay up to date with the latest developments in the industry.

The International Perinatal Stem Cell Society is holding two International Congresses in 2020. The 6th International Congress is being held March 5—6, 2020, in Salt Lake City, Utah (USA) and the 7th International Congress is being held May 25—26, 2020, in Ostrava, Czech Republic. 

The 6th and 7th Congresses are the most important congresses we have ever put on because the stakes for the perinatal industry and, more importantly, the stakes for the patients that are benefiting from the current amazing access to perinatal tissue allografts and cell therapies have never been higher. 

The 6th International Congress of the International Perinatal Stem Cell Society

The 6th Congress will focus on the United States market where the shifting sands of the entire perinatal tissue and stem cell industry are constantly changing. The reason for the uncertainty is that the 36 month window that the FDA granted for 361 companies to work with the agency — and become “compliant” — ends in November 2020. What does this mean? Join our FDA panel, focused on this question, to find out more.

We will also hear from groundbreaking researchers and companies working in this space. Even though the playing field is going to be different in the coming year, the fact remains that perinatal tissues provide incredibly effective therapeutic options for patients. 

The registration fee for the 6th Congress is US$999. Register now>>

The 7th International Congress of the International Perinatal Stem Cell Society

The 7th Congress will be more expansive in terms of the breadth of topics and will have a focus on the European market. This is the Perinatal Stem Cell Society’s first European meeting and we are excited to build our society and add members from around the globe. In the past, the Perinatal Stem Cell Society has supported the International Placenta Stem Cell Society (IPLASS) and we hope to see many IPLASS members at the meeting in Ostrava, Czech Republic. 

The registration fee for the 7th Congress is US$999. However, register before March 15th, 2020, to receive the early bird price of US$699. Register now>>

Join the Perinatal Stem Cell Society

Membership for the Perinatal Society is US$99 per year, with members receiving a discount of US$99 on registration to the conferences. The bottom line is if you plan on attending either event, become a member first. You can become a member, as well as register and view the agendas for each congress at our website.

Videos of the lectures from the 5th Perinatal Stem Cell Society Congress are also available for free on the website. Watch now>>

Sponsorship opportunities are also available for both the 6th and 7th International Congresses. Please contact Kyle Cetrulo with any questions regarding the congresses or the Perinatal Stem Cell Society.

I look forward to two great meetings and I hope to see you all soon.
