Cellular Therapies and Transfusion Medicine in Trauma and Critical Care Conference

from May 8, 2023 to May 11, 2023 08:00 AM ET

Speaker(s):

  • Willie Mays, PhD, Executive Vice President and Head of Regenerative Medicine and Neuroscience Programs
Athersys will be participating in the Cellular Therapeutics in Trauma and Critical Care’s (CTTACC) conference, “Cellular Therapies and Transfusion Medicine in Trauma and Critical Care,” from May 8-11, 2023 in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Presented by the University of California San Francisco and Colorado State University, this conference is the fifth in a series of conferences supporting the development and translation of novel therapies in trauma and critical care medicine, a field with limited therapeutic options. This conference will bring together the expertise and input of cell therapy companies, clinicians, basic scientists, industry, FDA, NIH, AABB, DARPA, BARDA and DOD representatives to discuss current research and existing barriers in the translation of these novel therapies in trauma and critical care medicine. Previous conferences have resulted in multiple cross-disciplinary collaborations and grants for pre-clinical studies and clinical trials.

Dr. Willie Mays, Executive Vice President and Head of Regenerative Medicine and Neuroscience Programs, has been invited to participate in this conference. On Tuesday, May 9th, he will be moderating a session titled, “Cellular and Novel Therapeutics in Neurotrauma and Polytrauma,” which will focus on novel blood and cell therapies for traumatic brain injury (TBI) and spinal cord injury (SCI).
