Bioregate European Regenerative Medicine Forum

Nantes, France

December 12–14, 2018

What is the Bioregate Forum?
Bioregate Forum is a biennial European meeting dedicated to the “4R Medicine”: Repair, Replacement, Regeneration & Reprogramming. It will highlight the latest scientific, technological, clinical & commercialization approaches in the field of cell & gene therapy, stem cells, biomaterials and tissue engineering. Its vocation is to enhance links between researchers, clinicians, industrials and institutional stakeholders such as those responsible for regulation and reimbursement changes, and thus to shorten time to market for the patients’ benefits.
