This year’s summer school will focus on cell therapy for tissue regeneration and immune modulation. The program will include class lectures and hands on courses in the lab targeting different raw materials like the cryopreserved clinical grade transplantable cells and therapeutic extracellular vesicles. Furthermore we will highlight the importance of entrepreneurial thinking, which is needed to transfer an academic result to a medical application for the benefit of patients. There will also be plenty of time for fruitful discussions with the lecturers and participants and several social events for networking.
