Healthcare and Spine Leader Discussed Allogeneic Cell Innovations as Part of Global Regenerative Medicine Event
Scott P. Bruder, M.D., Ph.D., Chairman of the parent company of Amendia, Inc., spoke at the World Stem Cell Summit on December 8 at the Palm Beach County Convention Center in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Dr. Bruder’s presentation was titled “Our Journey from Autologous to Allogeneic Stem Cell Therapy: How did we get here & when do we use what?” and was delivered in collaboration with three other leading experts as part of the event’s cell therapy program.
The World Stem Cell Summit & RegMed Capital Conference is the original, translation-focused global meeting of industry stakeholders. Now in its 12th year, and with over 1,200 attendees, 225 speakers, and 90-plus hours of programming, the World Stem Cell Summit serves as the choice venue for forging collaborations with worldwide pioneers across multiple disciplines.
"This summit is the premier opportunity to illuminate and explore the business of regenerative medicine on a worldwide scale,” said Dr. Bruder. “My presentation on allogeneic cells with Timothy Ganey, Ph.D., Lou Barnes, and Lisa Ferrara, Ph.D. is one of several important and distinguished cell-manufacturing discussions that focus on translation and commercialization for the present and future of stem cell medicine.”
Over the course of his 25-year career in healthcare, Dr. Bruder has united principles from basic science, clinical medicine, and industrial development to deliver products that enhance patients’ lives and improve outcomes. As a veteran physician, scientist, and executive, he now leads Bruder Consulting International, LLC, providing a variety of services to medical device, biotechnology, and regenerative medicine entities. Currently, he serves as Chairman of the Board of Directors of the parent company of Amendia, Inc., helping to develop biologic implants and medical devices for spine applications.
“Dr. Bruder’s command of the business of regenerative medicine, and influence in healthcare as a whole, is invaluable to the present and future of Amendia’s spine device and biologics innovation,” said Amendia CEO Chris Fair. “We’re honored to have such an insightful luminary on our team.”
