The conference, which is one of the most important in the science world, will this year focus on the the basic principles of regenerative medicine and show where medicine is heading in the next two decades.

Today for the first time we will also present the genetic origin and history of the USA, Asia, Oceania, Europe and Africa. This alone warrants that this is currently the most significant world conference,” the president of the International Society for Applied Biological Sciences (ISABS), Dragan Primorac said.
