Experts predict that the stem cell industry will be worth over $5 billion by 2014, reflecting the enormous potential of stem cell technologies in the pharmaceutical industry. In the light of this Oxford Global Conferences are proud to present our Stem Cell Congress, to be held on the 4th & 5th November 2013 at the Copthorne Tara, London Kensington.
The congress has confirmed world class speakers within the stem cell field. Over the two days our speakers will offer invaluable insights into the latest stem cell applications in translational research as well as exploring advances in bioprocessing and engineering technologies.
