CPG Scientific Events organizing the Stem Cell Congress 2020 which is going to be held from June 01-02, 2020 in Stockholm, Sweden focusing on current and future advancements in Stem Cell Research. The theme of this year's meeting is "New models, diagnostics and therapies to improve human health", which will provide an international platform for discussion and sharing of novel ideas for present and future expansions in various fields of Cell Therapies. World-leading health practitioners, Academicians, clinicians, educators and researchers will present cutting-edge and practical clinical techniques based upon widely accepted evidence and will introduce new and innovative research.
We cordially invite all of you to participate in Stem Cell Congress 2020!
World Congress on Stem Cell Research is a unique forum to bring together worldwide distinguished academics in the field of Cell and Stem Cell Research, public health professionals, scientists, academic scientists, industry researchers, scholars to exchange about state of the art research and technologies. Aim of this conference is stimulate new ideas for treatment that will be beneficial across the spectrum of Cell Research.
Sweden is able to progress as a result of government support with appropriate legislation and funding, a strong scientific research foundation, public support—including willingness to participate in clinical trials of bio-medical research, and international cooperative relationships and partnerships.
The Swedish Research Council is the largest provider of public funds for Swedish basic research at Swedish higher education institutions and research institutes. In 2008, some 340 million € were distributed to research and research infrastructures. Out of these funds, the Scientific Council for Medicine allocated € 90 million in research support, mainly through its yearly call for proposals that follows a bottom-up approach to support investigator-initiatsed research projects.
In this scheme, between 5 and 6 million € is allocated to stem cell research. The phase two of the Stem Cell Program together with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and the Swedish Association of Diabetes Research, with a combined budget of € 4 million, has funded 7 projects and ran from 2006 to 2008. Two laboratories have received designated funding from the Scientific Council for Medicine to participate in the ISCI2 genetic stability project. In addition to the research funding described above, the Government, in its 2008 Research and Innovation Bill areas chose 24 areas of strategic importance, where Swedish research is already world-class, and where society and the business sector have a major need for new knowledge. Stem cell research is one of these areas, and support will be given to two stem cell centers in Sweden after evaluation of applications from the universities.
