Miltenyi Biotec invites you to join a scientific day on the topic of cell and immune therapy. The cellular therapy field is growing immensely with new treatments and applications arising every day. We believe that the possibilities for future treatments are endless and with hundreds of clinical trials the journey has just started. The Nordics, and Medicon Valley in particular, is an innovative region with a big scientific collaborative environment between the private and academic sector. With this scientific day we aim to bring researchers, clinicians and the industry closer together and foster interaction, networking and new great ideas that can become reality.
