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
