Public Events

The Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute (ARMI) is hosting the first of three symposia on Regenerative Medicine and Developmental Biology. Over two days, key researchers from Australia, Chile and Brazil will meet at Monash University to:

  • share scientific expertise
  • strengthen existing academic and institutional relationships
  • access local and international networks of excellence, and
  • promote global mobility of the next generation of scientific leaders. The ABC Symposia will continue in 2018 in Chile and 2019 in Brazil.

Speakers for the Australian symposium include:

Australia

Prof Peter Currie

Director, Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute, Monash University

Prof Claude Bernard

Interim Deputy, Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute, Monash University

Brazil

Prof Jose Xavier-Neto

Proposed activity

The Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute (ARMI) at Monash University organises a series of two-day workshops with key researchers from Chile and Brazil. The “Australia – Brazil – Chile Regenerative and Developmental Biology Symposium Series” (the ABC Symposia) will consist of an annual symposium held for three consecutive years. The first event will take place in Australia at ARMI/Monash (2017), the second one in Chile (2018) and the final one in Brazil (2019).

Purpose and outcomes:

• Strengthening of existing academic and institutional relationships
• Exploring new areas of scientific collaboration
• Identifying and accessing local and international networks of excellence
• Sharing of scientific expertise
• Leveraging off complementing research capabilities and infrastructure
• Mechanism/programmes to facilitate junior researcher mobility
• Engaging and fostering the next generation of scientific leaders in regenerative medicine
• Cooperation in pursuit of external funds and grants to progress collaborative projects.

Participants:

The annual event is expected to be attended by 100–150 delegates. It is anticipated that
the events in Brazil and Chile will also attract delegates from other South American Countries. Each event
will run over 2 days and include 6 expert speakers from each of the 3 countries.

Key scientific leaders:

• Dr Mirana Ramialison, Australian Regenerative Medicine institute, Monash University
• Prof Claude Bernard, Australian Regenerative Medicine institute, Monash University
• Prof Miguel Allende, Director, FONDAP Center for Genome Regulation, Universidad de Chile, Chile
• Prof Juan Larrain, Center for Aging and Regeneration, Pontifica Universidad Catolica de Chile, Chile
• Prof Jose Xavier-Neto, Brazilian Biosciences National Laboratory
• Prof Tiana Kohlsdorf, Departamento de Biologia, FFCLRP, Universidade de São Paulo, Brazil
 


Funding

Whilst each country will secure funding for hosting and travelling to the symposia, we seek additional financial and in-kind support to enable the attendance of early career researchers and future talent from all three countries. Allowing for an active participation of PhD and graduate research students in these events will be an investment into the next generation of regenerative medicine researchers and ensure the sustainability and progress of future scientific collaborations between Australia, Chile and Brazil.
 


Call for sponsors

The Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute is pleased to bring you the 2017 ABC Symposium to be held from 10 – 9 October 2017 at Monash University, Clayton, Australia.

We would like to give our products and services vendors the opportunity to partner with us for this exciting and informative event.

This is a unique opportunity for all those involved in the regenerative medicine and developmental biology sector to promote the worldwide advancement of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.

We offer our delegates an innovative program and stimulating clinical debates which will be led by a balance of international and national speakers and the opportunity for industry to contribute, not only by sponsorship, but by also taking part in the oral presentations representative of their field.

As part of a comprehensive and effective marketing plan, sponsorship provides positive results and benefits to your brand and products – especially important in today’s economic climate.

  • Exposure to a local, national and international audience of regenerative medicine decision makers and influential people involved with regenerative medicine and developmental biology.
  • Opportunities to raise your company’s profile amongst a valuable target audience before, during and after this event.
  • Recognition including acknowledgement and clear demonstration of your organisation’s involvement, commitment and support.
  • Valuable insights, information and exposure to the latest developments in this field. Feel free to attend the scientific sessions.

To become a sponsor, or for more information, please contact Silvio Tiziani, Chief Operating Officer, Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute on +61 (0)3 9902 9603, or at silvio.tiziani@monash.edu.
