Advancing Clinical Trials With Stem Cells
Cedars-Sinai Medical Center
Tuesday, 25 June 2019

The development of cellular therapies is a complex process and as more therapies advance to clinical trials and beyond, the field matures and refinements to the process are made. This includes pre-clinical modeling, regulatory steps and the trials themselves. The ISSCR’s Workshop on Clinical Translation will showcase speakers from industry and academics that will discuss their approaches to modeling disease and developing cellular therapies in this translationally-focused program. This year's program follows the process of navigating toward and through clinical trials in three sessions:

  • Pre-clinical in vitro modeling
  • Pre-clinical animal modeling
  • Clinical trials  

The Workshop on Clinical Translation is a full-day program hosted offsite at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. A renowned panel of speakers will cover a range of topics from pre-clinical modeling to ongoing clinical trials. 

Date: 25 June, 2019
Time: 9:00-17:45
Where: Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Harvey Morse Auditorium
Price : $205 (trainee members), $225 (full/affiliate members), $245 (nonmembers). All prices in USD
