Jan Schrooten, Managing Director at Antleron, will present during the 3D Bioprinting Conference: “Building a regional ecosystem for regenerative medicine”.
The province of Flemish Brabant (Belgium) and its neighbouring regions together have a leading role in regenerative and personalised medicine research, translation, industrialisation, dissemination and clinical implementation. Also a critical mass of experienced and complementary actors along the complete value chain is present in this region. To maintain and strengthen this unique and high potential position in regenerative medicine a customised strategic innovation platform was established. The goal of this Regenerative Medicine Innovation Platform (RegMed) is to create a leading public-private community that, by building on its regional actors, can drive regenerative medicine towards a real industry with clinical applications and a socio-economical return.
