CONFERENCES SUPPORTED BY SPCE-TC
It is our great pleasure to invite you to the Annual Meeting of the European Tissue Repair Society (ETRS) and the Portuguese Society of Stem Cells and Cell Therapies (SPCE-TC), that will be held from 11 to 13 October 2023, at Auditorium of the Rectory of the University of Coimbra.
ETRS is a non-profit organization founded in 1988. Its mission is to promote knowledge and interchange between scientists, healthcare professionals and the industry on tissue repair, through annual meetings tackling from basic science to the clinical aspects of healing. SPCE-TC is also a non-profit organization that fosters research in regenerative medicine with special emphasis on the areas of Stem Cell Science and Technology, and Cell-based Therapies.
The 2023 ETRS & SPCE-TC Annual Meeting will bring together key players in the field to present and critically discuss the most recent advances in the field of Tissue Repair and Stem Cell-based Technologies. The meeting will devote particular attention to the promotion of networking between young and senior scientists, healthcare professionals and the industry, fostering the translation from the bench to the bedside.
Abstract submission – July 16th, 2023
Early bird registration – August 13th, 2023

Faro on 6-7th December 2022
Human longevity has increased over time, but ageing is often combined to a decline of biological functions and health, associated with an increased risk for neurodegenerative and cardiovascular disease, and cancer. Although several aspects of ageing are preventable and can be improved through a healthy and active lifestyle, maintaining a long lasting healthy life is a major societal challenge that will require a better understanding of the ageing process in cells and in the entire organism to be adequately addressed.
This conference is set in the context of the “With]Out[Borders” series launched by the Portuguese Society for Stem Cells and Cell Therapies (SPCE-TC) with the objective to nurture and promote fundamental and translational research on different research fields.
The Ageing With]Out[ Borders Conference aims to provide a multidisciplinary and informal stage to present recent developments in cells, stem cells, senescence, inflammation, and (epi)genetic mechanisms involved in ageing, by international renowned researchers in the field. This event will also offer the opportunity to promote discussion on fundamental and translational ageing research, and to discuss clinical and lifestyle interventions for health improvement during ageing.
Oral and poster communications will also be selected from the submitted abstracts and awards will be given to the best presentations. We invite you to join us in this event and contribute to a lively scientific discussion on the exciting field of ageing.
I am looking forward to seeing you in Faro!

COMPETE apoia projeto focado na divulgação da investigação de células estaminais
Este é um projeto de divulgação científica que, através dos meios de comunicação social, transmitiu conhecimento científico e esclareceu a opinião pública sobre um tema onde tem ocorrido grandes avanços científicos e tecnológicos.
O tema escolhido para este projeto é bastante importante na atualidade e exige uma divulgação científica séria e de qualidade. O potencial das células estaminais em termos de investigação básica e medicina regenerativa é muito atrativo e aparentemente fácil de explicar. No entanto, essa simplicidade é ilusória pois existem vários tipos de células estaminais com diferentes potencialidades, características e aplicações que estão muitas vezes distantes do que se ouve e lê na comunicação social.
Desta forma, o projeto “Quero mais e melhores células!”, financiado pelo COMPETE, e desenvolvido por investigadores do Centro de Neurociências e Biologia Celular (CNC) da Universidade de Coimbra resultou na produção de materiais de divulgação de ciência na área das células estaminais com o objetivo principal de contribuir para uma população mais informada.
