Stem Cell Differentiation and Dedifferentiation
Organizer(s): Shinya Yamanaka and Fiona M. Watt
Date: February 15 - 20, 2010
Location: Keystone Resort, Keystone, CO, USA
Sponsored by Genzyme Corporation, Pfizer Global Research & Development and Sangamo BioSciences, Inc.
Summary of Meeting:
Recent progress in induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells has shown that stem cells can be generated from differentiated progenies by introducing just a few defined factors. In addition, various stem cells have been isolated from human tissues. Stem cells from patients will provide various tools in understanding disease mechanisms, searching for effective drugs, and evaluating toxicity of drug candidates. Furthermore, human iPS cells and other stem cells may provide various types of cells for regenerative medicine. In this meeting, we will discuss how stem cells, including iPS cells, are isolated, generated and maintained. We will also provide an update on induction of differentiated cells from stem cells. We then will discuss progress in application of pluripotent stem cells and other stem cells in basic research, drug discovery, toxicology, and regenerative medicine.
