President’s Session

Among the highlights of the Cord Blood Connect international congress will be the President’s Plenary Session.

Contemporary ethical and regulatory issues in cord blood and perinatal tissue banking and therapies has been chosen by President Joanne Kurtzberg as the topic for a panel of experts.

“I look forward to lively discussions about the ethics of cord blood and birthing tissue donations for manufacturing of MSCs and related products, uses and regulations of personalized cell therapies, and

pathways for regulatory approvals to bring these products to patients in the clinic,” Dr. Kurtzberg said.

“Join me and colleagues from the FDA, the Bipartisan Policy Center and the legal and ethics community for this captivating session.”

The international congress convenes the evening of Friday, Sept. 14, at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel.  The President’s Plenary Session leads off the next morning.
