This event provides invaluable insights into the latest applications of stem cells in discovery and early development. Our experts will also explore methods in overcoming bioprocessing and manufacturing challenges presented by stem cells and iPS cells. Experts predict that the stem cell industry will be worth over $5 billion by 2014, reflecting the enormous potential of stem cell technologies.

Our renowned speakers will discuss methods of improving drug screening efficiency with stem cell models. Presentations will include the use of pluripotent stem cells in disease modelling, the application of iPSCs in translational research as well as stem cell based systems for gene expression profiling. Our industry leaders will discuss promising strategies to meet cell manufacturing quality and quantity requirements. Delegates will also hear about the latest advances in reprogramming techniques and methods to ensure controlled stem cell growth.
