Summary of Meeting:
Recent advances in the biology of pluripotent stem cells are exciting for both scientists and the lay public. At one level, molecular events such as expression of specific transcription and growth factors dictating differentiation ex vivo and in vivo are being elucidated in detail in the mouse model. At another level, the discovery of human ES and EG cells late last year, and the possibility of complementing stem cell derivation with somatic cell nuclear transfer, suggests dramatically new therapeutic approaches to disease. However, we are in very early stages of this research. How do the human and mouse systems differ at the molecular and cellular levels? What methods will allow enrichment and/or selection of specific cell types? Can we identify reprogramming factors? The purpose of this meeting is to bring together leading scientists in mammalian (including human) pluripotent stem cell biology to exchange ideas and new results surrounding these questions. The final plenary session gives added relevance to the basic science sessions by focusing on application of pluripotent stem cells to functional genomics, drug discovery, and regenerative medicine.
