We invite colleagues interested in stem cell biology, gene therapy and drug discovery. We will discuss modern tools used for genetic engineering, such as gene editing and gene transfer, the basic and translational research in stem cell biology as well as the new methods of diseases modelling and drug research, including the search for the vaccines against the coronavirus. The special part of the EUROBIOTECH 2021 will be the open session on “Stem cells: hopes and hypes”, with the lectures of the professionals: researchers and bioethicists, and with the possibility of discussion with the public.

The organizing committee of the event emphasize that in the era of the COVID-19 pandemic, medical biotechnology becomes even more important as one of the main tools to fight the coronavirus, and the tools of genetic engineering, cellular and molecular biology resulting from research have a chance to contribute to the development of effective vaccines and drugs.
