Challenges and promise of cell-based therapies
Date:4/1/2008

What: Challenges and Promise of Cell-Based Therapies is a one-day symposium to explore promising research in regenerative medicine using stem cells. The opening plenary session will feature an overview of hematopoietic stem cell therapy. This will be followed by four plenary sessions that will highlight cell-based therapies for the treatment of neurological, cardiac, musculoskeletal, and metabolic diseases and disorders. It will close with a presentation on induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) and the issues that need to be addressed to enable their potential use in cell-based therapies.

Why: The purpose of the symposium is to determine productive new directions for research in regenerative medicine and to help NIH prioritize research with the greatest potential for clinical benefit.
