Twenty lecture and discussion sessions which bring together eighteen of the leading experts in the field to explore this cutting-edge technology.

Note: This is a two-day course held over three days - from lunchtime on Wednesday until lunchtime on Friday.

Few topics have captured the imagination of the general public quite as dramatically as stem cells, both for the potential they offer regenerative medicine and the ethical sensitivities they create.

This course is intended to dispel the myths behind stem cell biology and introduce delegates to the science behind the headlines, the pitfalls as well as the promises.

Although the course will assume basic knowledge of the biomedical sciences, no previous understanding of stem cell biology will be required.

“The course is designed for those who have little prior knowledge or understanding of stem cells, so as to provide as broad an overview of the subject as possible. This will include not only the science underlying the subject but related issues such as the ethics and regulatory infrastructure and commercialisation of regenerative medicine.

Many of the lecturers will undoubtedly present some of their more cutting-edge insights which will, we hope, be of relevance to those with a particular interest in the field and who already come with specialist knowledge. Nevertheless, we intend to cater for the range of people we anticipate will be attracted to the course, irrespective of their background knowledge of the field."

Dr Paul Fairchild, Co-Director, Oxford Stem Cell Institute, University of Oxford
