"A great conference for networking and to learn about cell manufacturing challenges. Particularly for new scientists to the field, it gives a great balance of high-level overviews and detailed talks on cell therapies." - Lesley Chan, Ph.D., Development Scientist, Centre for Commercialization of Regenerative Medicine

What Others Say...

"The best commercial manufacturing conference in cell therapy to date. Period!" - Lee Buckler, Cell Therapy Group

"The IBC Cell Therapy conference is an excellent collection of the brightest minds in the cell therapy industry discussing the most critical subjects facing cell therapy today." - Nathan Smith, Mesoblast

"Practical relevant information for companies regardless of clinical phase you are in. Knowledgeable and engaging presenters with great lessons learned and best practices filled the program." - Ellen Colket, Lonza

"The first conference that combined classical bioprocessing tech and industry with academic and clinical fields." - Ricardo Baptista, University of Toronto

"This must-attend forum explores the industry's greatest challenges to develop and manufacture cellular therapies and offers real-world solutions to help you achieve commercial success." - Peter Zandstra, University of Toronto

"This was one of the top bioprocessing meetings last year, and 2012 should be even better. With approval trials advancing in the cell therapy space, requirements for scalable manufacturing positioned to meet COGS and reimbursement targets has growing importance. This creates market opportunity from the bioprocessing industry, whose entry has been long been needed." - Robert J. Deans, Athersys, Inc.

"This year's Cell Therapy Bioprocessing event expands on the foundation that was created at last year's event. It addresses all aspects of cell therapy development, from process issues and product characterization to regulatory concerns. From novices to experienced scientists in this area, there will be something that attendees can learn from the event, and should not be missed!" - Ron Fedechko, Pfizer Inc.

"Cellular bioprocessing is essential to enable scalable and cost effective cell based products to advance into the clinical arena. Anyone from academia or industry interested in an update on state of the art in cellular bioprocessing should consider attending this year's IBC event. A great venue to network and meet key thought leaders in the field." - Jeffrey Karp, Harvard Medical School and Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology

"In order for the entire field to progress, it is imperative that those of us in regenerative medicine participate in discussion forums such as the IBC Cell Therapy conferences in order to move beyond the basic science, and share knowledge (both what works and what does not) that would enable successful clinical commercialization." - Aby J. Mathew, Ph.D., Senior Vice President & Chief Technology Officer, BioLife Solutions, Inc.
