Invitation to Sponsors and Exhibitors

The Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM) and the Regenerative Medicine Foundation (RMF) have announced that the 8th annual Regenerative Medicine Essentials (RME) Course will be held in conjunction with the 16th World Stem Cell Summit uniquely. This unique, joined event will be formatted this year for virtual attendance.

The annual, RME course includes all research, clinical, industry, manufacturing government, educational, patient advocates and student representatives interested in the field of regenerative medicine, whether their interestss and career goals are in the basic sciences, clinical applications, regulator, biomanufacturing and bio-business, convergent technologies or other areas. In addition to individual lectures and engaging panel discussions with prominent leaders from around the world, participants have additional opportunities to gain an enhanced foundation in this promising field through special sponsored, hands-on and virtual workshops, demos and other partnering opportunities.

The World Stem Cell Summit is the most inclusive and expansive interdisciplinary, networking, and partnering meeting inthe stem cell science and regenerative medicine field. With the overarching purpose of fostering translation of biomedical research, funding, and investments targeting cures for patients of today and tomorrow, the Summit and RME course serves a diverse ecosystem of stakeholders. Through the Summit, we will include additional sessions and extensions through June 18, 2021.

As a distinguished sponsor, you will have the unique opportunity to connect with over 50 prominent instructors and Summit participants who are leaders in the field and overall event participants. Attendees are a distinguished group of scientists, engineers, clinicians from academic, government and industry sectors who join us from across the region, U.S. and globe. Both virtual and live sponsorships are available during, and, potentially beyond this hybrid event. Limited number of exhibitors will be located within the Bowman Gray Medical Education Center atrium and exhibiting hall areas and will have opportunity to interact with course participants and other professional tenants across the Wake Forest Downtown Innovation hub for biomedical science. Additionally, as an included benefit, we invite sponsors/exhibitors to join all course sessions and social networking activities.
