ESH-Eurocord-Eurocord-Ed Netcord WORLD CORD BLOOD CONGRESS

ESH-Eurocord-Eurocord-Ed Netcord WORLD CORD BLOOD CONGRESS
November 04 - November 07, 2010 - Marseille, France
Chairs :


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. A international panel of distinguished scientists and clinicians will participate in this major international forum over three days of interactive conferencing. The scientific programme will comprise a series of plenary presentations and debates. Poster sessions and 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 the professional actors working in the fields related to cord blood biology and clinical applications, from both the 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.
