TOKYO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--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.
At BIOtech 2013 Japan (Asia's LARGEST bio event taking place in Tokyo from May 8 to 10), 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 addresses 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, 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 (Osaka University Graduate School of Medicine) will disclose newly-developed cell sheet technology and its application for complete regeneration of severely-damaged myocardium. There will be more sessions featuring regenerative medicine and stem cell research, such as Special Session-5 addressing the great challenge of regenerative medicine - 3-D Tissue Engineering, Special Session-9 addressing the theme from a different approach - materials and manufacturing technologies required for further development of regenerative medicine, and many more.
