From Stem Cells to Therapy
Organizer(s): Janet Rossant, David J. Mooney, Margaret A. Goodell and Farshid Guilak
Date: March 29 - April 03, 2003
Location: Sheraton Steamboat Resort, Steamboat Springs, CO, USA
Supported by Keystone Symposia
Summary of Meeting:
Stem cells have generated considerable excitement recently in the scientific, clinical, and public domains. Pluripotent cells derived from early embryos or fetal tissues appear capable of indefinite expansion and have the capacity to differentiate into many cell types. Multipotential stem cells derived from adult tissues are being found in novel niches and have considerably broader differentiation capacity than originally imagined. By 2003 these exciting discoveries will be maturing into a broader understanding of the factors that control stem cell self-renewal, differentiation, and stem cell plasticity, as well as the differences between adult and embryonic stem cells. In order to translate this research into therapeutic applications, the basic biology must be merged with applied aspects of cell and tissue engineering, biomaterials, transplantation biology and delivery systems. This conference will bring together top stem cell biologists, biomedical engineers and clinicians in an interdisciplinary format to discuss the frontiers of stem cells and therapeutic applications. General topics: * stem cells and pluripotency * plasticity of stem cells * environmental signals controlling stem cells * quality control of stem cell growth and differentiation * from stem cells
