Stem Cells: Model, Target, & Therapy

Tuesday, 23 June 2020

Stem cells can drive clinical development in a diversity of ways. Stem cells can help identify new therapeutics through disease modeling, drug screening, and personalized medicine. Endogenous stem cells can be the targets of therapeutics, which can stimulate regeneration in vivo. Finally, stem cells or stem cell-derived products can be the therapeutic themselves, delivered to patients to replace or repair damaged tissues. The ISSCR’s Workshop on Clinical Translation will showcase speakers from academia and industry who will discuss various approaches to develop cellular therapies in this translationally-focused program. This year’s workshop explores the broad ways that stem cells are advancing pre-clinical research and clinical trials in three sessions:

  • Modeling Stem Cells for Discovery
  • Endogenous Stem Cells as Targets
  • Stem Cells as Drugs in Clinical Trials

The Workshop on Clinical Translation is a full-day program hosted at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. This program is designed for scientists, physicians, physician-scientists, and those interested in the latest clinical applications of stem cell research. A renowned panel of speakers will cover a range of topics from pre-clinical modeling to ongoing clinical trials. 

Date:    23 June, 2020
Time:    09:00-17:20
Where: Boston Convention and Exhibition Center

Registration: Tuesday, 25 June 07:30-09:00; Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, North Lobby

Price : $205 (trainee members), $225 (full/affiliate members), $245 (nonmembers). All prices in USD.
