The World Stem Cell Summit is the largest interdisciplinary, networking meeting of stem cell stakeholders, uniting the diverse regenerative medicine community. With the overarching purpose of fostering biomedical research, funding and investments targeting cures, the Summit is the single conference charting the future of this burgeoning field.

The program provides the research, industry, economic and societal context for understanding how all of the pieces of the stem cell puzzle fit together. The agenda features more than 150 speakers and 50 hours of in-depth presentations. Supported by 200 sponsors, exhibitors, endorsing organizations and media partners, the Summit is a three-day showcase of innovation, insight and inspiration.

The Genetics Policy Institute (GPI), a nonprofit organization, produces the Summit. The 2012 World Stem Cell Summit Organizing Partners include the Interdisciplinary Stem Cell Institute (ISCI) of the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Diabetes Research Institute (DRI), City of Hope, Karolinska Institute and the International Translational Regenerative Medicine Center (ITRC).
