Symposium Chairman Message



The development of modern sciences and emphasizing science production, in addition to the creation of wealth and dignity in the international community, have always been helpful in the treatment of diseases. The growth of knowledge-based products and the achieving the new and effective methods for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases have been a main desire of each country. Stem cells and related sciences are one of the promising areas for treating incurable diseases. One of the greatest human achievement in this field is the application of bone marrow hematopoietic stem cell transplantation for the treatment of a wide range of blood disorders which save lives of thousands of patients annually, especially children. Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, as well as other medical treatments, has some complications of which graft-versus-host disease (GvHD) is the most challenging and fatal consequences. The Iranian young scientists and researchers are struggling enthusiastically and shoulder to shoulder with the scholars around the world to answer the questions of this disease and preventing and controlling GvHD. So far, researchers from our beloved country have taken great strides in this area and have ameliorated the affliction of many patients involved with these complications. Due to the rapid growth of hematopoietic stem cell researches and GvHD, “The First Symposium of GvHD” will be held at the same time as “The 3rd National Festival & International Congress on Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine” in collaboration with France. The main goals and objectives of this symposium are: new attitude toward pathophysiology and grading of acute and chronic GvHD, new and developing treatments for acute and chronic GvHD, clinical trials of GvHD, the role of cell sources and tissue composition in the development of GvHD, cell therapy of GvHD, biomarkers associated with acute and chronic GvHD, photopheresis for GvHD, and graft manipulation for the prevention of GvHD. We hope that this gathering of young researchers with prominent scientists in this field from all over the world will be able to take an effective step towards improving the technical knowledge of preventing and treating this disease and raising the reputation of our country in the world of science. Finally, I would like to appreciate all dear colleagues and committees members involved in The 3rd National Festival & International Congress on Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine, as well as The First Symposium of GvHD, and I wish them good luck.
