Regenerative technologies are revolutionizing equine veterinary medicine, while providing invaluable guidance for human applications.

We are proud to announce that the Inaugural Equine World Stem Cell Summit will run December 7-9, in West Palm Beach, Florida, as a three-day dedicated showcase track of the World Stem Cell Summit.

The Equine World Stem Cell Summit will integrate equine stakeholders into the global regenerative medical community, and the entire World Stem Cell Summit audience will have the opportunity to learn more about the economic impact of the equine community and its impact on veterinary medicine and human health.

By providing a platform for the equine communities to interact with the leading researchers, the Equine World Stem Cell Summit brings together the equine community with the broader regenerative medicine community in order to advance research, accelerate delivery cures for horse health, and empower riders, owners, veterinarians, trainers, and all those within the equine industry.
