Clinical Advances in Stem Cell Research (CASC)

Tuesday, 13 June, 2017, 13:00 - 17:00
Room 253A, 253B, or 253C, Boston Convention and Exhibition Center
(Space is limited. Advance registration strongly recommended.)​

Badges for this program can be picked up outside room 253ABC beginning at 12:15.

New this year, the Clinical Advances in Stem Cell Research (CASC) is a half-day program held the day before the ISSCR 2017 Annual Meeting. In disease-focused tracks, leaders in current and translational therapies will explore the current clinical landscape, advances in cell therapies, and how stem cell research is being applied in the clinic. The three independent tracks, held in parallel, will each have a separate focus: immuno-oncology, neurodegenerative diseases, and ocular indications. See below for more information.

Who Should Attend?

Physicians, physician-scientists or others working in oncology, neurodegeneration, and the eye, with an interest in understanding the successes and challenges in moving cell therapies into the clinic for the respective disease area.
