I and my lovely colleague Elena, the Regenerative Medicine Commissioning Editor, will be attending this meeting, if anyone fancies a chat!
We are especially looking forward to this meeting as Dr Bubela is a Regenerative Medicine author andwrote a fantastic article on the global landscape of stem cell clinical trials for us at the beginning of the year – it is always nice to see authors in person for a change! The LRMN and Cell Therapy Catapult meeting earlier this year was excellent, so I'm certain this next one will be too.
