Stem cells & cancer stem cells: Regenerative medicine and cancer

Rapid development of stem cell research, tissue-engineering, material sciences and our understanding of cancer biology, particularly within the cancer stem cell-area, provide strong foundation for the development of regenerative medicine. On the other hand, the recognition of cancer as the diseases of stem cells allows for reciprocal knowledge flow between stem cell biology, regenerative medicine and cancer biology. Our goal is therefore to bring together researchers that develop new biomaterials, novel manufacturing techniques like electrospin, 3D-printing together with medical professionals, scientists specialized in (cancer) stem cells and regenerative medicine, in order to foster cross-flow of information and the development of new ideas that would facilitate quantum leap in regenerative medicine and cancer treatment.

Abstracts for oral presentation and poster should be submitted before Monday 30th of April 2018. Please upload your abstract during the registration or send it before the deadline to maurine.villiers@lestudium-ias.fr.

The number of oral presentations is limited, convenors will process a selection and confirm your presentation not later than Friday 02nd of May 2018.
Please note that we do not print the posters, but racks & pins will be provided for up to A0 sizes. 

The European Journal of Pharmacology sponsors prizes for “The best poster in the category “Regenerative Pharmacology”, that include cash-prizes and letter of congratulation from the editor.
All conference attendants are invited to submit (individually, or in a groups)  a review, or original manuscript, to a special issue of The European Journal of Pharmacology, that will be loosely dedicated to (cancer) stem cells, and regenerative pharmacology.


Hôtel Dupanloup : 1, rue Dupanloup - 45000 ORLEANS - FR

The conference venue is unique. Located right next to the Orléans’ cathedral, the episcopal palace of Orléans, built between 1635 and 1641, locally known as the Hôtel Dupanloup, is a classical French building which served until 1905 of residence to the bishops of Orléans.  Since 2014, the renewed palace hosts the International University Center for Research and Le Studium Loire Valley Institute for Advanced Studies.

Participants will be welcomed in this exceptional surrounding, blending Middle Age and Renaissance cultures with modern design and will have the opportunity to discover French cuisine and wines.
