We transfer biomedical research into the clinic.
The Fraunhofer Institute for Cell Therapy and Immunology IZI investigates and develops solutions to specific problems at the interfaces of medicine, life sciences and engineering.
One of the institute's main tasks is to conduct contract research for companies, hospitals, diagnostic laboratories and research institutes operating in the field of biotechnology, pharmaceuticals and medical engineering.
The Fraunhofer IZI develops, optimizes and validates methods, materials and products for the business units Drugs, Cell Therapy, Diagnostics and Biobanks.
Its areas of competence lie in cell biology, immunology, drug biochemistry, bioanalytics and bioproduction as well as process development and automation.
In these areas, research specifically focusses on the indications oncology, ischaemia, autoimmune and inflammatory diseases as well as infectious diseases and regenerative medicine.
The institute works in close cooperation with hospital institutions and performs quality tests besides carrying out the GMP-compliant manufacture of clinical test samples. Furthermore, it helps partners obtain manufacturing licenses and permits.
World Conference on Regenerative Medicine
Over the last years the importance of regenerative medicine increased. Today it comprises a huge variety of technological applications in miscellaneous fields of indications. Due to the international divergency in legislation and the related research conditions, there is a superior need for scientific interchange and discussion. The World Conference on Regenerative Medicine (WRM) closes the gap between research and industry and creates an additional benefit for the research location of Germany and Europe. The concept and challenge of bringing together international top scientists from research and industry gives special significance to this event.
The World Conference on Regenerative Medicine with about 1000 participants is organized biannually in the Congress Center Leipzig (CCL). The program combines scientifically first-class lectures and poster presentations as well as a large industry exhibition. Besides, different associations and networks present their latest research and conduct satellite symposiums.
The next World Conference on Regenerative Medicine will take place from October 21–23, 2015. Further information you will find on the event homepage:
