The Scientific Programme will offer a great selection of cutting-edge educational sessions and workshops addressing the most recent developments in Stem Cell Transplantation and Cellular Therapies. Germany, with more than 40 transplant centers and more than 3000 allogeneic stem cell procedures, is one of the most active countries for Stem Cell Transplantation in Europe. Germany is also known for its Donor Registries, with over 7.5 million volunteer donors providing hematopoietic stem cells all over the world.
We invite you to visit Frankfurt, a vibrant and modern German city near the river Main, known as a center for international finance, hosting the European Central Bank (ECB), a historical city of emperor coronations, the city of Goethe and the Frankfurt School, and a unique collection of 13 museums devoted to different works of art, from classical paintings to modern art.
The conference center is located in the heart of a financial and business district, the exhibition grounds are among the largest and most modern in the world. The convention center can be reached in just 15 minutes by public transport or taxi from the Frankfurt International Airport. All hotels are within walking distance of the venue.
