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. A renowned panel of speakers will cover a range of topics from pre-clinical modeling to ongoing clinical trials.
