More than 260 research scientists, veterinarians, and physicians from around the globe attended the first North American Veterinary Regenerative Medicine Conference, held in California’s Santa Ynez Valley March 5-6. The meeting included formal presentations by 25 regenerative medical researchers from throughout the United States and Canada, and was presented by the University of California, Davis, Center for Equine Health; the Alamo Pintado Equine Medical Center, and Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital.

In addition to multiple formal presentations, several open forum roundtable discussions were held between researchers and practicing clinicians, covering a range of topics including Clinical Trial Development, Basic Research and Stem Cell Biology, Regulatory Affairs, and In-practice Solutions. The event combined the latest in "cutting edge" research with innovative clinical applications, featuring several practitioners discussing results of stem cell therapy seen in their animal patients.

Attendees were enthusiastic in their appreciation for both the material presented and the interchange of ideas between scientists and the audience.
