5th Stem Cell Research & Therapeutics

  December 10, 2008  
GTCbio, Boston,MA
March 9-10 , 2009

 The 5th annual Stem Cell Research & Therapeutics Conference  provides cutting-edge information on developments in all areas of stem cell research including the biology, medicine, applications, regulations, and the business of Stem Cells. As alternative sources of human embryonic stem cells emerge, new and exciting federal funding opportunities are arising.

The conference will review recent developments in policies regarding funding for Stem Cell Research. Private funding from the Pharmaceutical Industry will also be addressed. These and other questions will be the highlight of GTCbio`s 2009 Stem Cell Research and Therapeutics conference.

Sessions for the conference include:

• Differentiation of Stem Cells
• Induced Pluripotent Cells, Reprogramming & Epigenomics
• Regenerative Medicine & Tissue Engineering
• Stem Cell In vivo and Molecular Imaging
• Regulatory Aspects, Commercialization & Funding Opportunities
• Cancer Stem Cells
• Stem Cell Applications in Drug Discovery
• Pre-Clinical & Clinical Trials of Stem Cell Therapy
• Technology in Stem Cell Research

This event provides a unique venue for attendees to network and meet with leading experts in the most comfortable and informal of settings.
