5th Annual International Meeting of the Portuguese Society for Stem Cells and Cellular Therapies

The SPCE-TC is organizing its 5th Annual International Meeting. This society was created in 2004 and congregates Portuguese scientists working overseas and in several Portuguese scientific institutions and companies. Its main aim is to promote the discussion of different subjects such as the future of stem cells research, potentialities of some findings for posterior clinical applications, ethical and legal problems and to encourage cooperative research between scientists with different backgrounds.
The 5th Annual International Meeting (www.spce-tc.org) is designed to examine some of the newest concepts, technical approaches, and recent findings related to the topic of stem cells and cellular therapies. The “state of the art” of many aspects of stem and cell therapy research will be discussed. The meeting will include oral and poster sessions, round table discussions and keynote lectures. Many current topics in this interdisciplinary area of research will be highlighted through several keynote lectures given by world recognized scientists.

Keynote Speakers already confirmed:

  • Clemens Van Blitterswik - Twente University, The Netherlands
  • Paolo Macchiarini - Thorax Europea
  • Paula Alves - Animal Cell Technology Unit, ITQB/Universidade Nova de Lisboa


Discussion Forum on Stem Cells Banking, with the presence of companies providing cryopreservation services in Portugal.
The program will also count with short oral communications from abstracts submitted to the conference.

CRIOESTAMINAL AWARD FOR BEST ORAL PRESENTATION
Crioestaminal, S.A., has decided to join this event as main sponsor and, as in previous editions, also attributting an award for the best oral presentation. All presentations will be evaluated by a committee of experts and the best work author will be given an award of 300 Euros and an additional gift offered by Crioestaminal.



Workshop on Supercritical Fluid Processing of Biopolymers and Biomedical Materials

From: 2009-11-16
To: 2009-11-17
Workshop on Supercritical Fluid Processing of Biopolymers and Biomedical Materials

GENERAL INFORMATION ON THE CONFERENCE AND SESSION TOPICS
Supercritical fluid technology has emerged in the past years as an interesting alternative for processing of biopolymers and biomedical materials. The aim of this seminar is to bring together scientists with such particular interest to share ideas in a relaxed environment.

The symposium session topics are:

  • Polymer processing
  • Biomedical devices
  • Drug delivery
  • Particle formation
  • Drug Impregnation
  • Polymerization
  • Sterilization of medical devices

The abstracts submitted and accpeted to the Workshop will be published in a special Issue of the Journal of Supercritical Fluids: "Supercritical Fluid Processing of Biopolymers and Biomedical Devices"


In addition, we are organizing this symposium back-to-back with the 5th European Symposium on Biopolymers (ESBP 2009) to which we ask your attention. The main topics herein covered will be: Biopolymers based on renewable resources; Biochemical and molecular basis of biopolymer synthesis; Biochemical and molecular basis of biopolymer degradation; Biopolymers in biotechnology; Biopolymers for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine; Biopolymers for controlled drug delivery; Biopolymers for nanomedicine; Advanced applications of biopolymers.

5th European Symposium on Biopolymers

last updated: 2013-03-04
From: 2009-11-18
To: 2009-11-20
5th European Symposium on Biopolymers

“Design, Production & Applications of Biopolymers in Tissue Engineering, Regenerative Medicine, Drug Delivery, Biotechnology and Nanomedicine”

GENERAL INFORMATION ON THE CONFERENCE AND SESSION TOPICS
This is the 5th bi-annual European symposium on biopolymers. These European based meetings, which are however fully international, join together scientists and engineers involved in studying the design, the mechanism of production and applications of biopolymers, exchanging brand new results and ideas. In this particular meeting the emphasis will be on not only on the design and production of biopolymers but also on its degradation mechanisms, as well as on applications on tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, drug delivery, different areas of biotechnology and nanomedicine.

The symposium session topics are:

  • Biopolymers based on renewable resources
  • Biochemical and molecular basis of biopolymer synthesis
  • Biochemical and molecular basis of biopolymer degradation
  • Biopolymers in biotechnology
  • Biopolymers for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine
  • Biopolymers for controlled drug delivery
  • Biopolymers for nanomedicine
  • Advanced applications of biopolymers


The symposium hopes to reach many researchers in the field aiming at increasing the spectrum of research presented and especially encourage young researchers, graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and young faculty members to present their work for constructive evaluation by their peers.

In addition, we are organizing this symposium back-to-back with a Workshop entitled Supercritical Fluid Processing of Biopolymers and Biomedical Materials to which we ask your attention. The workshop will have as main subtopics Polymer processing, Biomedical devices, Drug delivery, Particle formation, Impregnation, Polymerization and Sterilization.
