Clinical Translation of Stem Cells

21 Apr 2014 - 22 Apr 2014 - Palm Desert, CA, USA

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

Bile Acid Supports Production of Blood Stem Cells
A research group at Lund University has been able to show that bile acid is transferred from the mother to the foetus via the placenta to enable the foetus to produce blood stem cells.
New Biomarker to Assess Stem Cells Developed
A research team led by scientists from UCL have found a way to assess the viability of 'manufactured' stem cells known as induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). The team's discovery offers a new way to fast-track screening methods used in stem cell research.
Tricked-Out Immune Cells Could Attack Cancer
New cell-engineering technique may lead to precision immunotherapies.
Edited Stem Cells Offer Hope of Precision Therapy for Blindness
Findings raise the possibility of treating blinding eye diseases using a patient's own corrected cells as replacement tissue.
Hacking the Programs of Cancer Stem Cells
All tumor cells are the offspring of a single, aberrant cell, but they are not all alike.
Newfound Strength in Regenerative Medicine
A promising new approach uses direct mechanical stimulation to repair severely damaged skeletal muscles.
Mapping out Cell Conversion
Researchers develop algorithm that takes the field of cell reprogramming forward.
Donor's Genotype Controls the Differentiation of IPS Cells
Pluripotent stem cells derived from different cell types are equally susceptible to reprogramming, indicates a recent study by the University of Helsinki and the National Institute for Health and Welfare, Finland. However, the genotype of the donor strongly influences the differentiation of the stem cell.
Signals That Make Early Stem Cells Identified
Researchers at The Rockefeller University have identified a new mechanism by which cells are instructed during development to become stem cells
Healing Scarred Hearts
Findings suggest stem cells may one day be used to regenerate damaged tissue after heart attack.
