Moving forward with Stem Cell Therapy 2016
6th – 8th September, Online
Moving forward with Stem Cell Therapy 2016 is the first three day professional conference discussing Cellular Therapies that will be live streamed only. From basic research to clinical practice, this multi-disciplinary event provides an opportunity to share and compare research progress and clinical experiences to establish reliable cellular therapies.
Delegates will include academic researchers, clinicians, people from the pharmaceutical industry, and speakers from around the world will be presenting topics and participating in Question and Answer sessions throughout the three days.
Each day of the event focuses on a different topic, with the first day concentrating on ‘Improving Stem Cell Function and Survival,’ the second day focusing on ‘Stem cell interactions with the immune system,’ and on the final day discussions will be around ‘Clinical Applications.’ There will be a wide variety of topics each day; from stem cell transplantation to Parkinson’s Disease therapy to immunotherapy of head and neck cancer.
Dr Saudemont (Anthiny Nolan, London, UK) will discuss the use of umbilical cord blood as a source of stem cells in the context of transplantation in order to repair/replace a deficient bone marrow. Her talk will be focusing on new therapies and how they could contribute to improve transplantation outcome.
While Dr Pascale Guillot (University College London, UK) will show that human fetal stem cells can be used as a countermeasure to bone loss and that this has important application for treating bone loss associated with other pathologies, ageing, and space exploration.
Dr Johanna Buschmann’s talk (University Hospital Zurich, Plastic Surgery and Hand Surgery, Switzerland) will explore immune-suppression caused by adipose-derived stem cells.
Dr Kirsten McEwen (Imperial College London, UK) will discuss gender matters in scientific research. Her work and that of others shows that stem cells grown in a plastic dish differ if they are from females or males. Defining these sex differences is crucial for future personalised and regenerative medicine.
