Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Regulation
What You Need to Know

Tuesday, Sept. 17, 2019 • 1:30 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. EDT

If you find the FDA’s regulatory framework regarding regenerative medicine and stem cell therapies confusing, you’re not alone. A noted expert is here to explain the current regulatory framework and FDA’s interpretation, enforcement actions not only from FDA but FTC and the states, and opportunities for the legal development and use of stem cells.

You’ll gain an understanding of the FDA’s regulations and enforcement, and how stem cell stakeholders (pharma/biotech companies, healthcare providers) can best comply.

As a lawyer with a Ph.D. in molecular biology and an M.A. in biomedical ethics, Barbara A. Binzak Blumenfeld, Ph.D. is uniquely qualified to address how the law and stem cell science converge. A shareholder in the FDA & Biotechnology practice group at Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney PC’s Washington DC office, Dr. Blumenfeld will explain the latest on FDA’s interpretation of its stem cell regulatory framework, including its recent enforcement of that interpretation.
