Chairs: Eliane Gluckman and Marina Cavazzana

The upcoming World Cord Blood Congress will cover a wide range of topics including cord blood transplant in adults and children, the role of HLA in cord blood transplant, stem cells, cord blood banking and regulatory issues. An international panel of distinguished scientitists and clinicians will participate in this major international forum over four days of interactive conferencing. The scientific programme will comprise a series of plenary presentations and debates. Short oral communications selected from submitted abstracts will enable registered participants to present their own data.

The World Cord Blood Congress is open to all professionals working in fields related to cord blood biology and clinical applications from both public and private sectors, including physicians, research scientists, technicians, data analysts and nurses. The congress will also be of interest to healthcare policy decision makers.

For the first time, we will have a special session on innovative therapy for sickle cell disease.

The main objectives are to:

1 – Establish relationships between groups working in developed and emerging countries in order to define common guidelines and facilitate the development of new centres dedicated to the care of children with SCD.
2 – Collect information and establish a registry of children with homozygous SCD in selected centres.
3 – Collect information and establish a registry of homozygous pregnant mothers with SCD.
4 – Compare and provide guidelines of methods of genetic screening for SCD.
5 – Contribute to the development of a cell depository for research purposes.
6 – Establish a network of laboratories and biocomputing facilities.
7 – Assist in the development of family directed cord blood banks in families with SCD.
8 – Perform cost efficacy studies of haematopoietic stem cell transplant comparing costs in developed and emerging countries.
9 – Implement procedures to safeguard ethical, legal and social implications of research.
