Select Biosciences has designed this conference track to bring together researchers and industry participants focusing on the utility of stem cells for the treatment of various types of cancer.

There is much interest in the field to use stem cells for treating hematological as well as solid tumors.  HSCTs using bone marrow, PBLs, and cord blood have paved the way for such treatments to be possible and successful.

We examine in this conference track the basic and translational research studies being performed to bring stem cells to the oncology field.We also examine in this conference track cancer stem cells (CSCs), an often controversial topic, but nevertheless important for understanding cancer propagation at the basic level and also as a means to target tumors.

Agenda Topics

  • Clinical Trials Focusing on Targeting Cancer Stem Cells (CSCs)
  • Clinical Trials Status on Stem Cell Therapies for Cancer
  • Development of Stem Cell Therapies for Treating Cancers
    • Hematological Cancers
    • Solid Tumors
  • Emerging Companies Presentations
  • Grants and Funding Sources for Basic Translational Research Focusing on Stem Cell Therapies for Cancer
  • Role of CSCs in Progression of Disease and Metastasis
  • What will it Take to Successfully Translate Stem Cell Research/Cellular Therapy to Focus upon Problems in the Oncology Field?
