Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.

The scientific program for the 13th annual International Cord Blood Symposium (ICBS) brings all of the umbilical cord blood related fields of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, banking, and potential in regenerative medicine together in one interactive three day conference! Building on its illustrious 12 year history, the program for this year’s ICBS has been expanded to include results of novel applications of cord blood derived immunotherapeutic approaches, more presentations from industry partners engaged in the commercialization of cellular therapies, the challenges faced by cord blood banks both in the US and internationally. The clinical transplantation and outcomes day includes a provocative debate on outcomes utilizing competing graft sources and the health economics of cord blood transplants. The best abstracts submitted to the conference will also be presented. World renowned experts in the cord blood field will deliver presentations during focused plenary sessions and workshops. The program also offers many networking opportunities.
