Regenerative medicine

Achievements and prospects for the development of regenerative medicine, scientists and doctors will discuss at MSU


The jubilee V National Congress on Regenerative Medicine will be held in Moscow from November 23 to 25, 2022. This large-scale and significant event will bring together more than 2,000 specialists at the Lomonosov Moscow State University - leading representatives of the scientific community, experts, doctors, healthcare organizers, as well as industry representatives engaged in practical developments in the field of regenerative medicine.

Over the past years, the National Congress on Regenerative Medicine has become the largest scientific event on this topic in Russian history, each time gathering more than 1,500 specialists and attracting unprecedented attention to the "medicine of the future" developing all over the world.

Regenerative medicine is one of the most dynamically developing areas of medical science, which aims to recreate or replace cells, tissues or organs to restore the normal functioning of the body. Regenerative medicine is associated with the prospects of solving the most difficult tasks in the treatment of patients with severe, often incurable diseases or injuries.

In modern medicine, health-saving technologies, improving the quality of life and active longevity are actively in demand, which requires the development and implementation of fundamentally new approaches to the treatment and prevention of diseases. Regenerative medicine can offer many of them. Treatment without pills and operations, healing of the most severe and lethal diseases, prolongation of life, regeneration of organs are urgent and ambitious tasks set for specialists in the field of regenerative medicine.

The Congress, organized by Lomonosov Moscow State University and the Society for Regenerative Medicine, will present new research results in the field of genetic engineering, molecular and cellular biology, cell therapy, tissue engineering and the development of biomedical technologies. The Congress will unite participants in a community of like-minded people, whose joint efforts will develop regenerative medicine in Russia and attract scientists and clinical specialists from other countries to cooperate.

The rich scientific program of the Congress, including plenary lectures, symposiums, memorial events, will allow specialists to discuss the most important issues of regenerative medicine, assess current trends and formulate further ways of developing this field.

The main scientific topics of the Congress:

1. Mechanisms of renewal of body cells.
2. Regulation of the processes of repair and regeneration of organs and tissues.
3. Cell therapy and tissue engineering.
4. Gene therapy in regenerative medicine.
5. Gene modification and genome editing.
6. Development and production of drugs and medical devices for regenerative medicine.
7. Issues of ethical and legal regulation of regenerative medicine.

The Congress will play an important role not only as a scientific forum where leading scientists will be able to share their results, but also as an event forming a new professional community, which is now united under the auspices of the Society for Regenerative Medicine.

The existing achievements of regenerative medicine require special training of qualified scientific and clinical personnel. Within the framework of the Congress, a competition of young scientists will be held, the winners of which will receive awards that stimulate their further professional development, as well as the opportunity to make a report to the scientific community.

The Congress will be accredited in the NMO system.

V.A. Tkachuk, Academician, President of the Congress, President of the Society of Regenerative Medicine: "Regenerative medicine is a completely new direction of medicine. This is not a new technology in medicine, but another medicine that began to appear at the end of the last century and is now developing rapidly. There is such a phenomenon — the renewal of our body. This is a very powerful process. During the lifetime of the human body produces tens of tons of cells. We update all the time, but for a long time we didn't know how to manage this process. There are dozens of cell-killing mechanisms that are evolutionarily embedded in every living organism. These are special ways to remove old cells, instead of which new ones are formed. Health, harmony, and well—being are when these two processes, the death and formation of cells in the body, are balanced. Only in recent decades have we begun to understand how the processes of cell death are triggered. New opportunities have also opened up to regulate the formation of new cells. Stem cells play an important role in these processes - they have learned to isolate them from different tissues, grow, multiply and return them back. It started back in the last century. And literally in recent decades it has become clear that in the body some mature cells can turn into others. Little by little, we began to understand the role of regulatory RNAs that are written on the non-transcribed part of DNA, and a new opportunity appeared to regulate the processes of repair, regeneration, and cell renewal in the human body. There is a prospect of a new therapy that will be aimed not only at regulating living cells, but also at growing new cells, tissues, structures in our body."
