World iPS Cell Summit 2012

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



Bookmark and Share


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.

Cancer Cells Kill Off Healthy Neighbours
Cancer cells create space to grow by killing off surrounding healthy cells, according to UK researchers working with fruit flies.
Editing of Embryos Approved in the UK
The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) has approved a research application from the Francis Crick Institute to use new "gene editing" techniques on human embryos.
Microbes Take Their Vitamins
Scientists exploit organisms' needs in order to track 'vitamin mimics' in bacteria.

Technique robustly identified characteristic gene expression patterns in response to antibiotics, low oxygen conditions.
CRISPR-Cas9 Gene Editing Advances Again
UC Berkeley researchers have made a major improvement in CRISPR-Cas9 technology that achieves an unprecedented success rate of 60 percent when replacing a short stretch of DNA with another.
Disrupting Cell’s Supply Chain Freezes Cancer Virus
When the cancer-causing Epstein-Barr virus moves into a B-cell of the human immune system, it tricks the cell into rapidly making more copies of itself, each of which will carry the virus.
Why Do Some Infections Persist?
In preparing for the possibility of an antibiotic onslaught, some bacterial cultures adopt an all-for-one/one-for-all strategy that would make a socialist proud, University of Vermont researchers have found.
ASCB: A CELLebration of Cell Biology
The last major congress of the year, ASCB is less a platform for launching new products, but one for confirming and consolidating the trends that have emerged over the past 12 months.
Squeezing Cells into Stem Cells
EPFL scientists have developed a new method that helps cells turn in usable stem cells. The new approach involves “squeezing” cells with a gel, and paves the way for large-scale production of stem cells for medical purposes.
