The AO Research Institute Davos is honored to host the TERMIS (Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society) European Chapter Meeting 2017 from 26 - 30 June, in Davos, Switzerland with the theme “Personalized Therapies for Regenerative Medicine”.
Davos is the premier congress city in the Alps hosting the World Economic Forum annually since 1971 along with the AO Foundation's education courses for orthopedic trauma surgeons since the early 60’s. Davos is a Science city hosting four international research institutes, several clinics for patient treatment and its own hospital. Set in an inspiring alpine landscape, where spring is currently awaking in the high altitudes.
TERMIS-EU 2017 Davos will be the highest meeting of TERMIS at 1560M altitude and the conference aims to reach the highest level of scientific and clinical presentations. There were 1387 abstracts submitted of which 833 will be presented as posters (currently near 1200 registrations- May 31st). There are over 350 oral presentations including 60 keynote lectures, 66 invited lectures (from symposia organizers), four world renowned plenary lectures and a superb opening lecture- the 350 does not include the SYIS presentations (chosen from the student posters). There will be five parallel oral sessions, along with a new mode of an additional session room, dedicated for the whole week to the Student and Young Investigator Section (SYIS) presentations and activities including eight SYIS symposia. TERMIS-EU 2017 will also host the second ever Business Plan Competition, which was initiated at TERMIS-EU 2016 in Uppsala, Sweden and is run by the same enthusiastic young team. The popular yearly Industrial Day with 3 sessions returns and there will be a single plenary level debate along with a symposia level debate to stimulate some out of the box thinking and in the latter possibly influence the publishing review process.
Among the different activities, we would like to bring your attention to the mini symposium on “Integrated enabling technologies for personalised regenerative medicine” which shall take place on 27 of June.
