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.

Charting Kidney Cancer Metabolism
Changes in cell metabolism are increasingly recognized as an important way tumors develop and progress, yet these changes are hard to measure and interpret. A new tool designed by MSK scientists allows users to identify metabolic changes in kidney cancer tumors that may one day be targets for therapy.
Insights into the Function of the Main Class of Drug Targets
About thirty percent of all medical drugs such as beta-blockers or antidepressants interact with certain types of cell surface proteins called G protein coupled receptors.
Visualizing a Cancer Drug Target at Atomic Resolution
Using cryo-electron microscopy, researchers were able to view, in atomic detail, the binding of a potential small molecule drug to a key protein in cancer cells.
Honey’s Potential to Save Lives
The healing powers of honey have been known for thousands of years.
3-D Printed Lifelike Liver Tissue for Drug Screening
A team led by engineers at the University of California, San Diego has 3D-printed a tissue that closely mimics the human liver's sophisticated structure and function. The new model could be used for patient-specific drug screening and disease modeling.
Cytoskeleton Crew
Findings confirm sugar's role in helping cancers survive by changing cellular architecture.
Biomarker for Recurring HPV-Linked Oropharyngeal Cancers
A look-back analysis of HPV infection antibodies in patients treated for oropharyngeal (mouth and throat) cancers linked to HPV infection suggests at least one of the antibodies could be useful in identifying those at risk for a recurrence of the cancer, say scientists at the Johns Hopkins University.
Valvena, GSK Sign New R&D Collaboration
Valneva to supply process development services for EB66® -based Influenza vaccines.
Light Signals from Living Cells
Fluorescent protein markers delivered under high pressure.
Cellular 'Relief Valve'
A team led by scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) has solved a long-standing mystery in cell biology by showing essentially how a key “relief-valve” in cells does its job.
