The six sponsoring societies for the meeting Experimental Biology 2010 the American Association of Anatomists, The American Physiological Society, American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, American Society for Investigative Pathology, American Society for Nutrition, and American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics are pleased to preview some of the science being presented April 24-28, at the Anaheim Convention Center. The following six summaries highlight the broad scope of scientific research that will be covered at the meeting, which attracts more than 10,000 biological and biomedical scientists. The full program is located at: http://experimentalbiology.org/content/Program-PDFS.aspx.
Regenerative Pharmacology and the Applications of Stem Cell Therapies for Tissue and Organ Repair (ASPET)
Impressive achievements in understanding stem cell cultivation, differentiation, control mechanisms and modeling have been made over the past several years. Stem cells are now at the point of having present-day applications and important implications for the future of developmental and regenerative pharmacology, and, ultimately, world health. This American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics symposium will provide a state-of-the-art look at what we currently know about stem cells and the pharmacological control and differentiation of their behavior in both in vitro and in vivo models, and how the translation of stem cell research will move to bedside applications. Speakers will address topics ranging from the pharmacological control of stem cells and how stem cell-based therapies can treat cardiac disease to what industry is doing to create and launch stem cell-based therapies into the clinic.
