LARGER THAN LIFE SCIENCE | Thinking Ahead
March 26 @ 4:00 AM - 7:00 PM PDT
About this Event
Larger Than Life Science is a free monthly event series open to everyone interested in building a strong support network for San Diego’s life science and healthcare innovators.
San Diego Larger Than Life Science will be held at BioLabs in Towne Centre from 4-7 pm. Join us for an evening of unconventional conversation!
This month’s theme:
Thinking Ahead: Our Regenerative Future
Stem cells hold the potential to cure a wide range of diseases and researchers have dreamed of using them to repair damaged tissue, fight neurological problems and even create new organs. But such medical uses have attracted controversy and proven tricky both in the lab and with regulatory agencies. Join us this month to explore a new decade of opportunities with regenerative medicine.
PANEL | 4:30 – 5:30pm
Promise & Possibility: Current State of Stem Cell Medicine
The global regenerative medicine market is expected to reach $5.6 billion by 2025. Due to its wide range of applications regenerative medicine will continue to gain traction both within research institutions and with investors looking to ride the wave. But what can we expect in the next 10-years? What areas hold the most promise and who is receiving the funding? Join our panel of experts to explore the promise and possibilities of our regenerative future.
PANEL | 6:00-7:00pm
Getting to Market: Stem Cell Rules & Regulations
Research in regenerative medicine has grown exponentially with its ability to heal life threatening diseases and to restore tissue and organ function. However, the rapid advances in regenerative medicine have regulatory agencies continually struggling to balance the need to patient safety with minimizing unnecessary delays in getting new medicines to market.
Please join our panel to discuss:
- The current regulatory environment
- Key considerations in developing an effective strategy of moving new regenerative medicines quickly into the clinic and market
- Adoption of new technologies to drive innovation
NETWORKING | 4:00-7:00pm
