Nowadays, Stem Cell Technology and its application in Regenerative Medicine has drawn the attention of researchers and scientists from all over the world to this branch of science and technology, and the huge investments made in this field by the developed countries is indicative of the substantial role of this branch of science and technology in acquiring a remarkable contribution in treating the diseases in the near future, so it is predicted that, in the coming decade, the countries having this technology will be considered as the owners of authority in the national and international arenas.

The developments of the Islamic Republic of Iran in the field of stem cells and regenerative medicine, amid the trivial investments, depicts the high capacity of the nation in this field, in the way that Islamic Republic of Iran has already claimed the 1st place in producing scientific articles among the Islamic nations. Having regard to the high position of this technology in the world and its therapeutic significance and economic value for every community as well as being considered among the 1st grade priorities of the basic and applied sciences of paragraph (3-2), chapter 3 of Iran’s Comprehensive Scientific Plan, indisputably, maximizing material and spiritual investments and running scientific-cultural promotional programs in this field can lead to obtaining a worthy station in the Middle-East and the world by the Islamic Republic of Iran in 1404 Vision. In this regard, the Council for Stem Cell Sciences and Technologies of the Vice-Presidency for Science and Technology is honored to inform all the researchers, specialists, investors and all those people interested in the field of stem cells that "The Third National Festival and International Congress on Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine” is to be held from Nov. 24th to Dec. 1st, 2018 in Iran International Conference Center, Tehran.

This great national and international event is going to be the third experience of the Council for Stem Cell Sciences and Technologies in propagating stem cell and regenerative medicine sciences and technologies, which is hoped to be held more productive and successful than the previous year, having enjoyed the successful experience of the former events and the inexhaustible attempts of the colleagues engaged in the program. The third festival will consist of 9 major parts which are going to be as follows:

1- International Congress

2- Specialized Training Workshops

3- Exhibition of Knowledge-Based Companies

4- Technomarket

5- Thought and Innovation Association

6- National Award

7- Startups Event

8- Student Section

The scientific content of this year’s festival is based on 12 main subjects as below:

1- Applied Technologies for Stem Cell Research

2- Immune Cell Therapy

3- Gene Therapy and Gene Editing

4- Organoids in Disease Modeling and Development

5- Pluripotency and Reprogramming

6- Biomaterials and Devices

7- Tissue Engineering

8- Cell Banking

9- Cell Signaling and Cell-Derived Vesicles

10- Clinical Trials and Regenerative Medicine Interventions

11- Commercialization of Cell-Based and Regenerative Products

12- Ethical, Legal and Social Issues

In addition, the scientific speeches to be given by the prominent national and international researchers in the field of stem cell and regenerative medicine will adorn the scientific contents of the event. This great national and international event, amid presenting the latest scientific developments of this field in Iran and across the world, has created a suitable condition for the gathering and exchange of scientific and commercial experience on stem cell and regenerative medicine among the practitioners of this new knowledge and technology as well as the owners of innovative industries, and it has also paved the way for the optimal support of investors and the government from scientists, ideologists and activists.

The Council for Stem Cell Sciences and Technologies invites the enthusiasts as well as the professors, students, researchers and the brilliant experts engaged in the fields of stem cell science and regenerative medicine to add to the scientific richness of this event by actively participating in "The Third National Festival and International Congress on Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine”, and to try their best in the propagation of this ever-growing knowledge and technology in the country.
