Human medicine and veterinary medicine share a lot of research interests. The symbiosis is especially apparent and important in the rapid growing field of regenerative medicine.

Therefore the newly founded international Veterinary Stem Cell Consortium organizes its 1st International Meeting titled »Stem cell therapies – Steps towards clinical use« on October, 29th and 30th, 2009 in Leipzig. Leading scientists in the field of regenerative veterinary medicine have confirmed their participation, among them researchers from the United States, UK, Italy and the Netherlands. About 200 veterinarians are expected to attend the promising conference.

The VSCC Meeting is embedded in the World Conference on Regenerative Medicine (WRM). The unique alliance of human and veterinary medicine offers the participants of both branches a perfect opportunity to get a broad and interdisciplinary idea of the progress in the field of regenerative medicine. »We are convinced that the VSCC holds a great scientific potential perfectly aligned to the requirements of both fields –human and veterinary medicineand hope that it will expand in membership at this 1st International Conference on Veterinary Stem Cell Research«, says Walter Brehm, member of the VSCC and professor at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the University of Leipzig.

Submission of abstracts for the VSCC Meeting as well as for the WRM is possible until July 15, 2009 on www.wcrm-leipzig.com. For further information regarding the VSCC Meeting as well as the WRM please visit our homepage
