Welcome from the meeting chairperson

Dear participants,

On behalf of the European Society for Animal Cell Technology (ESACT) and the Organizing Committee, I am delighted to welcome you to the 27th ESACT meeting. What a joy to gather 1000 participants, coming from 33 countries, in beautiful Lisboa. A city embraced by the blue of the Tagus River, cooled by the Atlantic breeze, where the pavement stones shine, reflecting the sun, and the small hills challenge us to discover flowered cozy spots with wonderful views.
Convinced that our community was eager to meet in person, our conference, previously planned for June 2021, was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemics. From the number of abstracts received, the rapid response of invited speakers, and the remarkable interest of exhibitors and sponsors the decision to proceed with a face-to-face meeting in June 2022 has been fully vindicated. We did all efforts for you to be, and feel, safe at the conference. All the rules from the Health authorities are in place.
The meeting motto - Advanced Cell Technologies: Making Protein, Cell, and Gene Therapies a Reality – inspire us to engage and contribute to transform the future of medicines. We will discuss the latest advances in our field, present the most recent tools and technologies and profit from many networking events. All ingredients that make ESACT an unique conference.
The program was designed around six scientific topics, for which the Scientific Committee performed a blinded review of the abstracts and established a ranking based on the quality of the proposals. The ranking was used for the selection of the speakers and to identify the TOP 100 poster abstracts competing for the poster prize. I would like to thank all that have contributed with abstracts, posters and talks, and the Scientific Committee that lent their knowledge and their valuable time to select the excellent contributions. I would also like to thank all the academics and companies that have proposed workshops and symposia for Sunday before the official opening and the ESACT Innovation Award Committee for organizing the nominations received and selecting the ESACT2022 Innovation Award recipients.
My deepest gratitude goes also to the ESACT Executive Committee for their trust, all members of the Organizing Committee for so many hours of dedication to make this conference, the ESACT Frontiers for nurturing ESACT next generations and to the support of Grupo Pacifico Meetings & Events. It has been a 5 years team effort. Also worthy of praise is the fact that a lot of what you see and experience at the conference, would not have been possible without the generosity of our sponsors, for which we are exceedingly grateful.
For those coming for the first time to an ESACT Meeting, I encourage you take advantage of the friendly and inclusive community. We welcome 55 PhD students and early career scientists that received an ESACT2022 grant to attend this meeting. We wish all of you a meeting that meets your expectations, every success for your presentations, new impulses and fruitful interactions with other participants.

We are confident that this will be another great ESACT meeting where our community will celebrate being able to meet, talk and develop new connections and friendships again.

On behalf of the ESACT organizing Committee, I wish you all an outstanding ESACT meeting!

Sejam bem vindos,

Paula Alves
