Cryopraxis® Attends and Sponsors a Workshop of Bioengineering and Regenerative Medicine at Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ)
RIO DE JANEIRO --(Business Wire)--
Cryopraxis® will be one of the sponsors of Curso Internacional de
Bioengenharia e Medicina Regenerativa, a training course held at the
Carlos Chagas Filho Institute of Biophysics - UFRJ from June 3rd
Professor Shay Soker, PhD, from Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative
Medicine in North Carolina, USA is the main speaker. He has received his
Master's Degree in Microbiology and Molecular Genetics from the Hebrew
University of Jerusalem and his PhD in Biology from the Technion-Israel
Institute of Technology. Dr. Shay has already produced bioartificial
organs which could potentially become a therapeutic option for
degenerative diseases of high prevalence in our population for which
there is not yet adequate therapeutic solutions.
The workshop aims to produce decellularized, extracellular matrices of
biological organs (heart, liver and kidney) and repopulate them with
Cryopraxis® shws again its pioneering nature and has indicated interest
in the processes and products that may result from this technology.
"Cryopraxis® is constantly seeking cutting edge applied science. Our
scientists will attend this workshop and highly consider the vialbility
of utilizing this technology," said Eduardo Cruz, CEO of Cryopraxis®.
In 2013, PhD student Lanuza Faccioli from UFRJ did an internship in the
lab of Dr. Shay and on this occasion, this event was planned. The
participation of several research institutions with a broad level of
experiences in the field of tissue bioengineering and the diverse
background of participating researchers will allow for a
multidisciplinary approach to the establishment of processes and
products for public and private sectors.
"The generation of scientific knowledge and technological competence in
the field of Regenerative Medicine will ensure advances in medical care,
in institutions involved with cell therapy to treat regenerative
diseases," said Prof. Regina Coeli dos Santos Goldenberg, coordinator of
Launched in 2001, Cryopraxis® is Brazil's pioneer company dedicated to
long term stem cell banking. Cryopraxis® is also Brazil's leader in
research and development with stem cell from bone marrow, cord blood,
and adipose tissue.
Cryopraxis® is committed to science, technology, good laboratory
practices and provides high quality service and care for its customers.
