Therapies Workshop

We are all keen to know when and how new stem cell therapies will reach patients. At the SCI we believe it is important to involve patients in discussions about the best ways to achieve and regulate the delivery of advanced therapies.

 

In partnership with UK charity Genetic Alliance, we invited a group of representatives from patient charities and the biopharmaceutical sector to  discuss  the development of advanced stem cell therapies. Prof. Robin Franklin gave an overview of the potential of ongoing research as well as the challenges of bringing therapies to clinic.

Visitors then met with Cora Olpe, Dan Howard, Simón Méndez-Ferrer & Thomas Moreau, who are conducting pioneering research in the field of haematology. They had a chance to look at a fascinating new way to make and mass produce platelets.
