8th conference Stem Cells and Cell Therapy:
From Research to Modern Clinical Applications

We cordially invite you to 8th traditional conference Stem Cells and Cell Therapy organized in cooperation with companies SOTIO a.s. and Česká společnost pro buněčnou biologii, z.s. (the Czech Society for Cell Biology).

Given the growing interest, we decided to organize this year at a new place at Hotel Galant in Lednice.

It is also due to you that we succeed to develop the conference to higher level every year.  We are therefore thrilled to enable you to participate in a lot of quality talks by speakers from leading local workplaces as well as foreign institutions, e.g. Newcastle University – Institute of Genetic Medicine.

Hotel Galant, Lednice 10 and 11 October, 2019
We are looking forward to your participation.
