  Cambridge Healthtech Institute's
  CELLutions SUMMIT 2006
  August 14-17, 2006 ~ Boston, MA

  Cambridge Healthtech Institute's CELLutions SUMMIT highlights developing
  technologies and techniques to meet the needs of therapeutic development.
  Building on last year's successful Back to the Science of Stem Cell 
Research and
  Tissue Models for Therapeutic Development meetings, we have expanded the
  program to include the Inaugural Mammalian Cell Culture meeting, and 
Partnerships &
  Technologies, creating a summit that shapes the foundation for more rapid
  advances towards the clinic. For more information, visit
