Hematopoietic Stem Cells: From the Embryo to the Aging Organism
Event Jun 07 - Jun 09, 2018
Location: Heidelberg, Germany
-HSCs production and regulation in embryonic, adult and old organisms
-Differences and similarities between HSCs throughout development in different animal models
-Role of the microenvironment in HSCs function and maintenance at different stages of life.
The aim of the meeting is to bring together recognised experts and outstanding young team leaders around the central theme of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) production and regulation throughout life. It will be essential to generate new hypotheses and to move forwards our understanding of HSCs, the key cell type for the continuous production of blood cells throughout life.
