About Festival

Many scientists and researchers worldwide are showing increasing interest in stem cell sciences and technologies and their application in regenerative medicine. Stem cell and RegMed market has grown exponentially over the last decade. The incredible increase in investments in stem cell and RegMed research by big pharmaceutical companies have been quite impressive. The inspiring advances made by the I.R. Iran in this area of science, in spite of rather trivial investments, well demonstrates the great potentials available in the country. Iran, at present, ranks 1st in the Middle East region in terms of scientific publications and production in the field of stem cell sciences and regenerative medicine.
Given their unique regenerative abilities, stem cells offer new potentials for treating various diseases. However, much work remains to be done in the laboratory and the clinic to understand how to use these cell-based therapies to treat diseases. Hence, stem cell research is a high priority area in the "Group of Basic and Applied Sciences" under the Chapter 3 of the "Comprehensive Scientific Map of I.R. Iran". Therefore, increased in the investment in stem cell and RegMed research and public promotion through scientific-cultural programs can further boost the position of this area of science.
On the verge of the tenth year of the establishment of Iranian Council for Development of Stem Cell Sciences and Technologies, the "3rd National Festival and International Congress on Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine" will be held by this council with effective cooperation of scientific and academic communities, institutions and organizations. The festival is focused on 3 general scopes including research, education, and technology. This unique scientific event includes 9 components comprising:

  1. International Congress
  2. Educational Workshops
  3. Innovation Think Tank
  4. National Award
  5. Knowledge-Based Co. Exhibition
  6. Techmart
  7. Startup Weekend
  8. University Associations Forum
  9. Student Symposium

Hopefully, this scientific gathering would serve as a platform to promote stem cell sciences and technologies.

Goals of the Festival:

  • Science and technology exchange in stem cell and regenerative medicine between experts worldwide
  • Presenting latest scientific achievements through keynote lectures and paper presentations
  • Exchanging modern technologies through collaboration between companies and experts
  • Educating interested individuals about cell sciences and RegMed topics through various workshops
  • Promoting and commercializing cell and tissue-based products of knowledge-based companies
  • Brainstorming the thought of knowledge-based economy in the field of stem cell sciences and regenerative medicine through start-up weekend
  • Attracting the attention of high school students to this field of science through a Student symposium
