Summary of Meeting:
The most exciting current research to be covered by this conference includes adult stem cell plasticity, clinical applications of stem cells, and human ES cell lines. The major and pivotal problems to be addressed include the controversy surrounding adult stem cell plasticity, and limited data from human ES cells. The goals of this meeting will be reached with a greater emphasis on adult stem cells than previous years and an update on practical applications.
