"This year's symposium will be a major event," said Margaret Conn Himelfarb, MPH, chair of the Maryland Stem Cell Research Commission. "Our agenda not only highlights the work of Maryland researchers, but provides insight into where this groundbreaking science is headed nationally. We expect a wide range of attendees from scientists to the general public, including medical advocates, economic development officials and key players working to advance stem cell research across the country. This symposium is a rare opportunity for investigators from both the public and private sector to share ideas with one another as well as demonstrate how the MSCRF is helping Maryland become a leader in this critical field."
