SELECTBIO’s Clinical Translation of Stem Cells 2014 brings together basic scientists, clinician-scientists, as well as medical practitioners/surgeons focusing on studying, characterizing and deploying various classes of stem cells for therapeutic utility.

In addition to top-tier presentations during this conference, SELECTBIO has also partnered with surgeons and surgery centers in the Palm Springs area to offer conference delegates a "hands-on" Clinical Practicum providing conference delegates the ability to observe in real-time adipose tissue extraction and processing ex vivo.  This "hands-on" demonstration led by leading surgeons in the field is in full compliance with applicable laws and regulations and performed by board-certified surgeons.

This conference therefore provides valuable learning and networking experiences for both basic researchers and clinicians alike seeking the most up-to-date information, protocols, and products in this emerging field.

All delegates are automatically registered to the Clinical Practicum which will be conducted in the evening after the conclusion of the conference presentations.


Agenda Topics:
•    Adipose-derived Stem Cells
•    Clinical Utility
•    Disease Classes Addressed and Current Status of Ongoing Clinical Trials
•    Regulatory Landscape and Ethical Considerations
•    Research and Clinical Perspectives
o    Cosmetic Surgery and Associated Applications
o    Regenerative Medicine
•    Translational Research Activities with Adult Stem Cells
•    Umbilical Cord Blood-derived Stem Cells

You can present your research on a poster while attending the meeting. Submit an abstract for consideration now!
Poster Submission Deadline: 31 March 2014

Human Stem Cells to Rapidly Generate Bone, Heart Muscle
A new study shows that combining positive and negative signals can quickly and efficiently steer stem cells down complex developmental pathways to become specialized tissues that could be used in the clinic.
New Therapeutic Targets For Small Cell Lung Cancer Identified
Researchers at UTSW Medical Center have identified a protein termed ASCL1 that is essential to the development of small cell lung cancer and that, when deleted in the lungs of mice, prevents the cancer from forming.

Researchers have identified a new infection mechanism of tuberculosis that could lead to a new therapeutic angle.
Modelling ALS Requires ‘Aged’ Stem Cells
Research suggests engineered cells are too ‘young’ to accurately model ALS and should be 'aged' to speed progress toward finding potential treatments.
Protein Reinforces Growth of Damaged Muscles
Biologists have found a protein involved in stem cells that bolsters damaged muscle tissue growth - potential for muscle degeneration treatments.
