Bioprocessing Technologies in Stem Cell Research


The 2nd Stem Cell Community Day brings together experts from industry and academia to discuss recent achievements, challenges, and chances in stem cell bioprocessing for research and commercial manufacturing.
Stem cell-based technologies lay the basis for pioneering approaches in regenerative medicine, drug screening, and toxicology testing. Their commercial use requires reliable methods for the large-scale production of stem cells in consistent quality. In three sessions attendees will discuss the state of the art in stem cell research and bioprocessing, perspectives on process design, scale up, and product safety.
