RegMedNet is attending another conference in September; the ICR3.

This conference will be the first time that the disparate research genres of tissue engineering, bioscaffolds, tissue substitutes and complex wound care will be placed in one venue to present and interact. Importantly, it will be a venue for researchers to get in touch with the industries that can turn their research into therapies and devices for patients use. The meeting will encourage participation from venture capital companies, offering advice on commercialisation of regenerative technologies.

For more information see here, and find the agenda below.

We are really excited to be attending here at RegMedNet, so please say hello to the team!
