Special Issue:

Current developments in the manufacture of pluripotent stem cell-based medicines: Proceedings of PSConf 2021


Guest editor: Prof Glyn Stacey


Deadline for submission: 30 November 2021


Expected publication date: 31 December 2021


The highly successful Pluripotent Stem Cell Conference 2021 (PSConf 2021), 21-26 April 2021 brought together international leaders in the development of human stem cell-based medicines to understand the current state-of-the-art and consider the needs of ongoing research in this area. The event included an International Symposium and Workshops on different aspects of human pluripotent stem cell (hPSC)-based manufacturing. The goal of this special issue will provide researchers from around the globe an opportunity to identify the current gaps in knowledge and technology and priorities for future research. This special issue offers an important opportunity to bring together world-renowned scientists and regulatory experts to address the technical challenges and consider current international regulatory science in this cutting-edge area. The special issue will rapidly publish contributions together with a summary of the meeting report of PSConf 2021 including insightful comments and feedback from all panelists and delegates. We cordially invite all speakers to submit a review of their state-of-the-art research advances presented during PSConf 2021.
