Foregen Presents at The World Stem Cell Summit


Two weeks ago, Foregen’s president Vincenzo Aiello and I went down to West Palm Beach, Florida to attend the annual World Stem Cell Summit – the leading conference in the world covering all aspects of stem cell and regenerative medicine. All the iconic figures in regenerative medicine were there, from Dr. Anthony Atala of Wake Forest, Bernie Sieger the head of the Genetics Policy Institute and organizer of the summit, to Aubrey de Grey of the Sens Institute.

I had the opportunity to speak at last year’s World Stem Cell Summit, where my presentation made quite the impression. I’m likely the only person most of the attendees, mostly doctors, researchers, and investors, have ever heard speak of the foreskin in a serious, scientific manner. (Video of last year’s presentation). We were fortunate enough to be invited back to present this year to showcase our progress over 2016.

Foregen Attends Hello Tomorrow


As we announced on social media last month, Foregen was invited to attend Hello Tomorrow, a global summit for science entrepreneurs held each year in Paris. As one of the Top 500 startups selected for the event, Foregen spent two days in the company of giants of science and industry. Like our own organisation, Hello Tomorrow was founded as a non-profit, and with a single goal in mind: to bridge the gap between early, pioneering scientific ventures (like ours!) and the industrial support that can ensure their success. For two days, the “perfect storm of good things” takes hold in Paris, where young startups, maturing businesses, daring scientists, academics, and experienced investors, ready with laminated name tags, unlimited espresso, and a seamless weaving of French and English, come together to support the truly innovative in science.
