2018 Organizers & Partners

Bioregate Forum is organized by Nantes University and Atlanpole Biotherapies supported by a local organizing committee and an international scientific committee. Pr Pierre Weiss is the scientific leader of the event and Dr Réjane Bihan is the coordinator.



Bioregate Forum is a biennial European meeting dedicated to the “4R Medicine”: Repair, Replacement, Regeneration & Reprogramming. A regenerative medicine forum to highlight latest scientific, technological, clinical & commercialization approaches in the field of cell & gene therapy, stem cells, biomaterials and tissue engineering. Its vocation is to enhance links between researchers, clinicians, industrials and institutional stakeholders such as those responsible for regulation and reimbursement changes, and thus to shorten time to market for the patients’ benefits.
