11th BSRT symposium: when hypotheses become clinical reality – Berlin 2-4 December 2020

We are delighted to invite you to join us at the upcoming 11th BSRT symposium!  

Regenerative medicine promises to functionally heal tissues and organs previously thought irreparable, by stimulating the body’s own repair mechanisms. But what exactly has been accomplished by this young branch of translational medicine which was only just defined in the 1990s? Are these promises still hypothetical or are they on their way to becoming clinical reality?

In this year’s symposium, experienced scientists and physicians will not only describe their clinical trials, revealing what has been achieved so far in the development of tomorrow’s personalized medicine, but also talking about possibilities for future clinical translation. Speakers will present the latest diagnostic tools used to predict the healing potential of patients, as well as new regenerative therapies to combat various diseases. In addition, they will show how rehabilitation approaches are tailored to the individual needs of the patient. Early-career scientists still ‘at the bench’ doing basic research will also have the opportunity to present their projects and discuss ideas with the potential to reach the clinics. This year, we looked for inspiration from great thinkers of humanity and decided to let ourselves be guided on this journey by quotations from ancient philosophers. They strove in their own ways for enlightenment and truth to further the well-being of humankind, just like we do in the field of regenerative medicine.

Due to the Corona Pandemic, the 11th BSRT symposium will be a face-to-face event for early career scientists with online keynote lectures given by international experts (Hybrid Symposium). However, in the event of another major lockdown in December, we will organise the event as a full online symposium. So, let us learn from the past and look towards the future of regenerative medicine!
