TERMIS European Chapter Meeting 2017
26 - 30 June, 2017, Davos, Switzerland
Personalised Therapies for Regenerative Medicine
We are pleased to announce TERMIS-EU 2017, the premier event for the dissemination of cutting edge research in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. The conference is the official European chapter meeting of the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society (TERMIS), whose purpose is the worldwide advancement of both the science and technology of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.
In 2017 the EU chapter meeting will be held from the 26th to the 30th of June 2017, at the Congress Centre, Davos, Switzerland. We are honoured to be able to host this important meeting. Davos is the premier congress city in the Alps hosting the World Economic Forum annually along with the AO Foundation's education courses for orthopaedic trauma surgeons, and also a Science city hosting 5 research institutes, several clinics for patient treatment and its own hospital. Davos is considered the world's finest meeting place.
TERMIS-EU 2017 Davos will be the highest meeting of TERMIS at 1560M altitude and we aim to reach the highest level of scientific and clinical presentations (naturally along with highest Swiss standards of organization). We expect between 1000-1300 attendees based upon the 1300 abstracts we received. We have 22 accepted educational based society symposia from numerous European and International Societies, along with over 38 accepted traditional symposia. We have opened for a short time Late breaking posters due to several requests until April 21st without possibility of extension due to review and publishing deadlines.
This is a highly important meeting for surgeons, scientists and industry interested in regenerating tissues to improve patient's lives. TERMIS- EU 2017 was granted 23 European CME credits (ECMEC) by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME).
All abstract submissions have been evaluated by the Conference Scientific Advisory Committee, local organizing committee and numerous keynotes and symposia proposers. . All abstracts presented (poster or oral) will be published in a special supplement of the eCM online 'Open & Free Access' journal in late May 2017. eCM Journal Impact Factor: 4.560.
There will be 5 parallel oral sessions, along with a new mode of an additional session room, dedicated for the whole week to Student and Young Investigator Section (SYIS) presentations and activities will also be introduced at this meeting for the upcoming generation of scientists and engineers in the field of TERM. TERMIS-EU 2017 will also host the second ever Business Plan Competition, which was initiated at TERMIS-EU 2016 in Uppsala, Sweden along with the popular yearly Industrial Day set of sessions.
Opening lecture from Corrado Cancedda MD " Strengthening the Health System while Responding to the Ebola Virus Disease Epidemic: Lessons Learned by Partners In Health in Sierra Leone"
Plenary Lectures: Jeff Karp " From Conception to the Clinic, Making Ideas Useful"; Pamela Robey " The role of tissue-specific stem/progenitors cells in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine"; Katja Schenke-Layland "Enhanced imaging techniques and their role in regenerative medicine"
There is a superb list also of keynote lectures in the symposia and several award lectures from TERMIS, the SYIS group and the AO Berton Rahn award which has been won by Rob Mauck from the University of Pennsylvania.
There will also be an opening debate hosted by Prof. David Williams (past president of TERMIS).
THE MOTION "This house believes that regenerative medicine, and society in general, will be better served over the next decade, by a few clinical successes in liver, pancreas or spinal cord regeneration than hundreds of effective orthopaedic or dental procedures."
We ask all members to attend the TERMIS-EU assembly and have your say for the society.
We hope to welcome you to this inspiring place for an excellent meeting of TERMIS.
