SelectBIO is pleased to welcome you to Cell Therapy Asia 2018 which will be held in Kobe, Japan.

This conference brings together academic and industry participants focusing on many aspects of this rapidly expanding and evolving field including stem cells for cellular therapy, iPSCs and their deployment for research, pharmaceutical discovery and cellular therapy, immuno-oncology (IO) including CAR-T cell research and clinical application.

The conference addresses the whole ecosystem of Cell Therapy and Tissue Engineering with a focus on 3D-Culture, Organoids, Microfluidics technologies for constructing microphysiological systems.

In addition to presentations from academics, the program includes an emphasis on presentations from companies as well as posters to illustrate late-breaking research and an exhibit hall with companies seeking to engage with delegates from Europe, US, across Asia/Pacific and Japan.

With its strong biomedical research infrastructure, Kobe Japan is a perfect venue for Cell Therapy Asia 2018.

SelectBIO is honored that Professor Norio Nakatsuji, Professor Emeritus Kyoto University will be leading the conference as Chairman and invites young scientists to submit poster abstracts to the conference and participate in the conference
