The 2018 edition of the World Stem Cell Summit takes place January 22-26, at the Hyatt Regency Miami. Having attended the University of Miami, in a bygone era, and spent my entire professional career in South Florida, I can assure all attendees that you will share a very special ambiance and an extraordinary experience.

In the winter, Miami boasts the best weather in the United States, unless you are a penguin. About 50 to 80 degrees warmer that anywhere else, especially Rochester, Minnesota!

Miami in “the Season” inspired legendary ballads such as “Moon Over Miami”, the Miami music scene featuring Gloria Estefan and Pitbull and elegant lifestyles epitomized by “champagne wishes and caviar dreams.” Not to mention great dining for every taste exemplified by Joe’s Stone Crabs in SoBe and the iconic Versailles restaurant on Calle Ocho, known for the best Cuban sandwich to be washed down with a colada of Café Cubano.

Yes, in 2018 the Summit is a destination meeting. But there’s more to South Florida than fantastic beaches, glorious nightlife and fun.

Miami is more than the exotic, international commercial crossroads and gateway to Latin America. The entire region is evolving into a hub for discovery in the life sciences and growing destination for start up biotechnology companies, with major research universities and thriving biotech parks.

There are many regenerative medicine conferences to consider in 2018, but I urge you to jump-start your success by attending the 13th World Stem Cell Summit, co-located with Phacilitiate’s Cell and Gene Therapy World and Immuno-Oncology Frontiers World events.

Miami- the perfect place to heat things up at just the right temperature!
