Anemocyte to Sponsor Inspirational "Phacilitate:TALKS" stage featuring Spark Therapeutics, Dendreon, Genenta and Space Tango
Phacilitate Leaders World, January 22-25, 2019, Miami, Florida
Miami, FL - December 28, 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). Specialties 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 has 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."
