European Biotech Week: Holostem virtually opens its doors to the public
Modena, September 27th, 2021 – On October 1st, Holostem Terapie Avanzate and the Centre for Regenerative Medicine “Stefano Ferrari” at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia – in collaboration with the “Le Ali di Camilla” Association – will organise a virtual tour of their laboratories in Modena.
HoloTour will take the public inside state-of-the-art facilities, home to research and development of new advanced therapies, to discover the company that produced the first stem cell therapy approved and registered in Europe. It will also be an opportunity to meet the various protagonists of research, development, production and distribution of advanced therapies in the Italian regenerative medicine scene. Their words will accompany the audience during the tour, which will take place from about 4 to 5 pm, and at the end there will be a space dedicated to Q&A.

The appointment is part of the series of meetings organised to celebrate the 2021 edition of the European Biotech Week (EBW), the week that from September 27th to October 1st, 2021 will tell the many nuances of biotechnology through events and demonstrations around the world. The aim of the initiative is, in fact, to tell a vast and heterogeneous public about biotechnologies in their various fields of application (from therapy to diagnostics, from agrifood to industrial processes, from environmental remediation to renewable energy, to name but a few). But also to celebrate the key role that these technologies play in improving the quality of life for all of us. Italy, with many appointments in the programme (downloadable HERE), will once again play a leading role in the global event.
Biotech Week was launched in Canada in 2003 and landed in Europe in 2013 at the behest of EuropaBio on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the discovery of the DNA structure. Since its first Italian edition, it has been coordinated at national level by Assobiotec, the national association for the development of biotechnology that is part of Federchimica.
Over the years, the institutions have continued to support the event: this year, in fact, the initiative once again enjoys the patronage of the Chamber of Deputies and the Senate of the Republic, and in 2015 it was awarded the ‘Medal of the President of the Republic’ as a representative prize.
