October 10-13, 2019, the Haston City Hotel in Wroclaw (Poland) hosted the 10th Annual International Scientific Meeting of the Consortium for Regional Cooperation for Health, Science and Technology. The local organizer of the conference was the Department of Experimental Physics, Faculty of Fundamental Problems of Technology, Wroclaw University of Science and Technology.
The Consortium of Regional Cooperation for Health, Science and Technology was founded 15 years ago at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, USA. This scientific consortium includes 18 universities and other academic units to conduct collaborative research. Today, the International Consortium of Regional Cooperation for Health, Science and Technology brings together scientists from Ukraine, Poland, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Croatia, Romania.
It is far not the first time that the Ukrainian delegation at the International Scientific Conferences of the Consortium is one of the largest, although the selection of participants occurs on a competitive basis and is based on the scientific level of the submitted papers. Participation of the scientists who have successfully passed the competitive selection in the conference is supported by travel grants. The long-standing research adviser of the Institute of Cell Therapy has been successfully selected already four times and presented the results of her research at the International Scientific Conference of the Consortium of Regional Cooperation for Health, Science and Technology.
In 2019, the conference program highlighted the latest advances in molecular and cellular biology, biochemistry, biotechnology, hot issues of obstetrics and gynecology, as well as the effective treatment of socially important diseases such as obesity and cancer, and aspects of the legal regulation of clinical trials in EU countries.
The international integration of the staff members of the Institute of Cell Therapy allows our Center of Science to carry out scientific research on a high level, the result of which is the continuous improvement of both Cryobank services on cryopreservation of perinatal tissues (umbilical cord blood, placenta, umbilical cord) and medical services of the Clinic.
