Global market scale of regenerative medicine is expected to reach more than USD 4 billion in 2020 (according to SEED PLANNING). Expectation toward regenerative medicine and stem cell research represented by iPS cells is ever growing, not only for clinical application but also as tools to make drug development/discovery more effective and efficient.
Especially in Japan, home of the Novel prize winner Dr. Yamanaka, the market is moving very actively, gaining support in many aspects such as government subsidies, legislation, launch of research centers and so on. Also the industry sector is paying close attention to the market, many companies from various industries entering it.
At BIOtech 2013 Japan (Asia’s LARGEST bio event taking place in Tokyo from May 8th to 10th), there will be an increased number of presentations, research achievements and technologies/products related to iPS Cell Research / Regenerative Medicine showcased. Why not visit BIOtech 2013 Japan and explore the forefront of the hottest field?
The foremost authority of stem cell research will address the future potential of iPS Cells (CONFERENCE)
At the Conference, the latest development on iPS Cells and Regenerative Medicine will be addressed as one of the main features. No.1 popular session at the moment is Special Session-3 spoken by the foremost authority of stem cell research, Dr. Hiro Nakauchi, Professor and Director of Center of Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine, The Institute of Medical Science of The University of Tokyo. In addition to his presentation “iPS Technology and its Potential for Future Medicine”, Dr. Sawa of Osaka University Graduate School of Medicine will disclose newly-developed cell sheet technology and its application for complete regeneration of severely-damaged myocardium. (“A Promising Strategy of Myocardial Regeneration for Severely Damaged Myocardium”)
Special Session-5 will address the great challenge of regenerative medicine, 3-D Tissue Engineering. (“Realization of Cartilage Regeneration by Cell Sheets Accelerating Joint Treatment” / “Making Hearts: Challenges of Functional 3-D Tissue & Organ Engineering”)
Special Session-9 will address the theme from a different approach, materials and manufacturing technologies critical for further development of regenerative medicine. (“Frontier of Medicine-engineering Synergetic Cooperation in Regenerative Medicine -Engineering Approaches to Further Medical Development-”)
