Welcome to the SELECTBIO Inaugural Clinical Translation of Stem Cells Summit and Clinical Practicum.

This summit seeks to bring together researchers and clinicians focusing on translating basic discoveries in the stem cells field into applications in cellular therapy and regenerative medicine.

Basic research findings as well as clinical case studies will be presented at this summit and discussed within the framework of the direction this field is taking with associated challenges and opportunities.

There is currently a collision taking place between basic research on stem cells and clinical translation of these research efforts.  We explore this interface at this summit.

This Summit includes presentations from leading researchers in the field as well as a CLINICAL PRACTICUM in the evenings on both days:  Delegates will have the opportunity to view reconstructive surgery procedures onsite at the Summit:  Illustrating the Translation that is taking place from the Bench to the Bedside.

Agenda Topics

  • Adult Stem Cells for Cellular Therapy
  • Bone Marrow vs. Adipose-derived Stem Cells
