Anemocyte sponsor Phacilitate:TALKS, a new stage at Phacilitate Leaders World 2019
Miami, FL (December 27, 2018) – Phacilitate:TALKS, sponsored by Anemocyte, is a brand new stage at this year’s Phacilitate Leaders World, a revolutionary gathering of the advanced therapies community at the Hyatt Regency Miami, January 22-25, 2019.
For 15 years, Phacilitate has brought together dynamic leaders with fascinating stories and ideas. This year, Phacilitate:TALKS, sponsored by Anemocyte, will give attendees an opportunity to connect with international leaders in a new, engaging and inspiring format.
Anemocyte, Diamond Partner of the conference, is a leading Biotech Manufacturing Organization (BMO), boosting change and innovation in the field of Cell and Gene Therapies (CGTs). Specialities include process development and GMP capabilities (Somatic Cells, Non-Viral Modified Cells, Vesicles); plasmids for Viral Vector Manufacturing; Data Analysis of CGTs and more. In the ongoing life sciences revolution, Anemocyte is a driving force, promoting the transformation of ideas born in the lab into treatments available on the marketplace, to the benefit of patients.
“At industry conferences, the traditional lectern and PowerPoint format doesn’t give presenters the opportunity to share the uniquely personal experiences that have led them to where they are today. We wanted to bring these passionate, inspiring stories to the forefront of Phacilitate Leaders World. Anemocyte’s enthusiasm, imagination and drive have led to the creation of the Phacilitate:TALKS stage, where storytellers will share lessons to empower our industry to take new strides,“ said Laura Rae, Phacilitate’s Event Manager.
Anemocyte CEO Marco Ferrari says, “Stories are a beautiful and compelling way to inspire change. We’re excited to work with Phacilitate on an innovative conference format, sharing stories that will inspire further development in the advanced therapies industry. As Anemocyte is looking to the future, we are listening and sharing ideas to trigger new inspiration.”
Impressive and diverse speakers have been selected for the inaugural Phacilitate:TALKS. Examples of confirmed stories include, “Space – the next frontier for ‘global’ pharma,” by Jana Stoudemire, Chief Commercialization Officer, Space Tango; “How to ask strangers for money, and get it,” by Pierluigi Paracchi, Co-Founder and CEO, Genenta; “Drawing the future of advanced therapies,” by Neil Canavan, Scientific Advisor, Solebury Trout; “Gene therapy drug development, a history of synergies between academia and industry…” by Federico Mingozi, CSO, Spark Therapeutics, who drove the development of multiple first-in-human gene therapy drug candidates for the treatment of inherited disease; “The next chapter starts here, and ends with a cure,” by Nicole Gularte, Leukemia survivor and advocate for CAR-T Cell Therapy.
