Join the first forum of its kind in the Middle East and North Africa to focus on the stem cells

Stem cell therapy has become a promising and innovative scientific technology giving hope to both health professionals and patients all over the world. The development of treatment methods has achieved great results globally especially in the Middle East and North Africa, where stem cell therapy and regenerative medicine are fast-moving and expansive, and if progress continues at its current pace, the region could become one of the world's centers for biomedical research. In fact, the size of the Middle East and Africa stem cell market is estimated to reach USD 2852.64 million by the end of 2026. (Market Data Forecast).

In line with this, the MENA Stem Cells Forum, will be held on 18 – 19 March 2022 in Dubai, as the first event of its kind in the Middle East and North Africa to focus on this sector. This exclusive meeting will discuss key trends and topics, such as stem cell banking, scientific research, applications, public awareness, and regulations. The event will be the region’s biggest platform where local, regional, and international experts, key opinion leaders, researchers, physicians and more from academia and industry share their experiences and knowledge on the latest advancements, crucial topics and the challenges in the stem cells research and therapy.
