Organised by the International Stem Cell Forum, this symposium will address state-of-the-art stem cell research and the translational challenges for clinical use: stem cells and regeneration in various organ systems, pluripotent stem cells, experimental therapies, and ethical and regulatory aspects of regenerative medicine.
The International Stem Cell Forum (ISCF) aims to encourage international cooperation and financial support for stem cell research and to promote the responsible use of stem cells in research and health care worldwide.
Among those taking part in the symposium are:
- Hans Clevers (Hubrecht Institute): Wnt signaling, Lgr5 stem cells and cancer
- Darrel Francis (Imperial College London): Noise, optimism and denial: The three steps to research area
- Bartha Knoppers (McGill): Privacy and data sharing in pluripotent stem cell research
- Geoff Lomax (California Institute for Regenerative Medicine): CIRM's Alpha Stem Cell Clinics: A platform for cell-based therapies
- Christine Mummery (LUMC): Human pluripotent stem cell in modelling cardiovascular disease: relevant for drug discovery?
- Mahendra Rao (NY SC Foundation, USA): Deriving neural derivatives from iPSC
This symposium is fully booked.
