Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Over the years, the fields of Stem Cell Transplantation and Cellular Therapies have undergone enormous expansion in clinical trials and basic research, as well as in cutting-edge technology.
The International Congress on Controversies in Stem Cell Transplantation and Cellular Therapies (COSTEM) will function as an exclusive forum for international experts to share and compare experiences, in order to outline the right treatment for patients. This innovative Congress is unique in its explicit focus on resolving controversies in the best clinical care of patients.
Academically, the Congress will raise the most dynamic and controversial topics facing clinicians in these fields, in an exciting and engaging debate forum. The Congress will promote excellence by seeking to shed light on ongoing and challenging debates and to bridge gaps between the expansion of information and its consolidation in clinical practice.
Participants will have the advantage of discussing and debating these unresolved issues with leading world experts in all fields of Stem Cell Transplantation and Cellular Therapies. Allowing ample time for speaker-audience discussion, the Congress aims at reaching up-to-date and agreed-upon answers to ongoing debates even when proof is lacking, through evidence-based medicine and expert opinion.
We invite you to take part in the COSTEM Congress which is intended as the inaugural event of future editions.
We look forward to an exciting event in the beautiful city of Berlin.
Prof. N. Kröger and Prof. A. Nagler
