DoubleTree by Hilton Cadbury House, Congresbury, Bristol, BS49 5AD

This regional meeting will provide a showcase for research in Regenerative medicine from across the South West, as well as collaboration and networking opportunities.  In addition to Principal Investigator’s, participation from early stage researchers and PhD students is also encouraged.

SPEAKERS
We look forward to welcoming our plenary speakers:-
Professor Bruno Péault, Centre for Regenerative Medicine, University of Edinburgh.

Dr Nick Crabb, Programme Director – Scientific Affairs, Centre for Health Technology Evaluation, NICE. "The Health Technology Assessment of Regenerative Medicines and Cell Therapies"

The presentation will introduce the evaluation and decision frameworks used in NICE Technology Appraisals before considering the suitability of these frameworks for regenerative medicine and cell therapy products. Challenges for both the developers of regenerative medicines and those charged with their evaluation and reimbursement will then be presented. There will also be coverage of on-going work at NICE recommended by the UK regenerative medicine expert group
