Argument

The European EUCelLEX Project (Cell-based regenerative medicine: new challenges for EU legislation and governance), lead by Emmanuelle Rial-Sebbag (Inserm UMR1027)consists in a full examination of the application of the European rules regarding cell banks together with current practices in respect of the therapeutic use of human cells in some European countries. This project aims at building and at organising a Task force on Stem Cells in Europe for collecting facts and figures to assess the current legislation on the therapeutic use of cells, and to bridge it with research infrastructure capacity building.

The EUCelLEX consortium and the European Association of Health Law (EAHL) are delighted to invite you at the EUCelLEX Final International Conference, to be held in Paris in September 2016, the 22nd and 23rd.

This International Conference will cover a vast range of topics, related to how “Engaging stakeholders for responsible Stem Cells research”. Our aim is to create a Task Force for improving the collaboration of  key stakeholders involved in the questions raised by the use of stem cells.

This event will be structured in two parties:

  • On the 22nd of September, the EUCelLEX consortium will present the results of the analysis of the current European and national legislations in regards to the practices that are due to develop in the near future and will make recommendations to the European Commission. The program will consist of plenary sessions and round tables.
  • On the 23rd of September, we will propose a joint workshop with the EAHL, about “Stem cells banking, legal conditions and governance issues“.

Conference attendance is free but requires registration. Attendees at the conference are invited to present a poster related to workshops topics.
