Sanford Health Selected for Global Cell-Therapy Event at Vatican
Vatican City – Sanford Health’s work in cellular therapy and regenerative medicine is on the world stage this week. A group of researchers and leaders from Sanford Health were selected to participate in the “Third International Conference on the Progress of Regenerative Medicine and Its Cultural Impact” and receive the 2016 Pontifical Key Innovation Award at the Vatican.
The conference has gathered the world’s leading scientists, physicians, ethicists, philanthropists, leaders of faith and government offices to discuss breakthroughs in cell therapy Thursday through Saturday in Vatican City, Rome.
The event is the continuation of a seven-year collaboration between The Stem For Life Foundation, a not-for-profit organization devoted to advancing global awareness of regenerative medicine and cell therapy, The Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Culture and its foundation, STOQ (Science, Theology and the Ontological Quest). This year’s focus is on “Cellular Horizons” and will explore the future and how science, technology, information and communication will allow for personalized medical solutions to remove inefficiencies, eliminate unnecessary care and improve clinical outcomes at an individual level.
Several Sanford Health researchers are sharing their expertise at the conference, while Sanford Health President and CEO Kelby Krabbenhoft and philanthropist Denny Sanford on Thursday accepted the Pontifical Key Innovation Award. Continue>
