UKRMP and the Canadian Stem Cell Network (SCN) are committed to translating stem cell and regenerative medicine science from the lab to clinical applications. Both organisations are dedicated to training the next generation of regenerative medicine scientists and together are seeking to form an international partnership to enable PhD students, technicians, post-doctoral associates and fellows the opportunity to expand their networks, develop new skills and form collaborations between the two countries.
This symposium is the first in a two parts series aimed at introducing the wealth of research being undertaken in each of the two countries; featuring talks from expert speakers working in the areas of stem cells and regenerative medicine for discovery or in the development/clinical translation of stem cell and regenerative medicine therapies. Register here to attend.
Participants are encouraged to attend to take this opportunity to expand their networks internationally. In Summer 2022, UKRMP and SCN will be hosting Connecting Canada and the UK Part 2: Building Networks; a networking event which will give participants the chance to have one-on-one discussions with colleagues in Canada and the UK.
