World iPS Cell Summit 2012

31 Oct 2012 - 01 Nov 2012 - Boston, MA, USA

iPS cells are completely changing the way we study disease and develop drugs. But understanding how to use this technology is critical.

The rapid progress in our understanding of iPS cell technology has been remarkable. But the next step is using iPS cells to meet research, therapeutic and commercial objectives.

So how are you keeping up to date with the latest advances? How are other drug developers generating and using iPS cells? What about applications in research?

In our research you told us that there is no other commercial event specifically designed to help the field drive forward the practical utility of iPS cells. Until now.

For the first time, the World iPS Cell Summit delivers 19 leading industry and academic speakers who will help you tackle the key issues in translating innovative iPS cell research into drug and therapeutic development. Arm yourself with the tools you need to advance your iPS cell reprogramming, differentiation, disease modeling and drug development approaches.
