SELECTBIO 2nd. Annual Clinical Translation of Stem Cells 2014 brings together basic scientists, clinician-scientists, as well as medical practitioners/surgeons focusing on studying, characterizing, and deploying various classes of stem cells for therapeutic utility.

In addition to top-tier presentations during this conference, SELECTBIO has also partnered with surgeons and a surgery center in the Palm Springs area to offer conference delegates a "hands-on" Clinical Practicum providing conference delegates the ability to observe in real-time adipose tissue extraction and processing ex vivo.  This "hands-on" demonstration led by leading surgeons in the field is in full compliance with applicable laws and regulations and performed by board-certified surgeons.

This conference therefore provides valuable learning and networking experiences for both basic researchers and clinicians alike seeking the most up-to-date information, protocols, and products in this emerging field.

All delegates are automatically registered to the Clinical Practicum which will be conducted in the evening of day 1 after the conclusion of the main conference presentations.
