TechTalk - Regenerative medicine


  • Locatie
    Plus Ultra Leiden
  • Organisator
    Leiden Bio Science Park


The three reNEW partners Leiden University Medical Center, University of Copenhagen and Murdoch Children’s Research Institute in Melbourne, work together to ultimately develop advanced therapy medicinal products (ATMPs) to transform the lives of patients with chronic diseases. 

In this TechTalk we will show you several aspects of our ongoing work in Leiden within the frames of the reNEW consortium, with a focus on technologies we use and the steps we take to bring our research to the clinic. In addition, for this TechTalk we partner with Avivo, a Canadian company located at the Leiden Bio Science Park that also works on transforming lives. 

We do not only want to show you what we do, but also hope that you could use the information in your own line of work. And during the drinks after we would love to talk to you and hear what you do to transform patient’s lives!

Introduction Tech Talk

At Tech Talk events, experts from different organisations at LBSP share their views and insights around a specific technology or subject so that attendees can both broaden and deepen their knowledge on this topic.

In recent years, Tech Talks have become a well-known concept at LBSP. In 2023, we organise another new series of talks.
