These include Prof. Gustav Steinhoff from Rostock, who will speak about the indications for and long term outcomes of cardiac stem cell therapy. Further key note lectures will be given by Prof. Jürgen Hescheler, Prof. Ulrich Dirnagl, Prof. Bodo-Eckehard Strauer, Dr. Brigitte Onteniente and Dr. Bernd Stratmann. They will cover topics from across the field of Ischemia and Regeneration and present their latest findings in front of an international audience. The six sessions focus on cardiac, cerebral and peripheral ischemia as well as the use of stem cells, process development and imaging.

As the scientific program fills up, numerous sponsors for the industry exhibition which will be located in the atrium of the Fraunhofer Institute for Cell Therapy and Immunology, have also voiced their desire to participate. The space for booths is now, fully five months before the event nearly sold out.

Registration is now possible on and the early bird rebate will be available until June, 15th. June 15th is also the deadline for participation in the symposium with a lecture or a poster. Information and submission forms can be found on the stated homepage.
