5th Annual Global Conference on Stem Cell Therapy to be held Jan. 13-16, 2009 in NYC

WHAT: The Fifth International Conference on Cell Therapy for Cardiovascular Disease (IC3D) is a three-day comprehensive program dedicated to the evolving field of cell-based therapies for treating cardiovascular diseases. The theme of this year's meeting is "Cellular and Molecular Building Blocks: Strategies for Cardiovascular Reconstruction in 2009."

WHY: Leaders in the field will convene to present basic, core discussions on stem cell science as well as their work, experiences, observations, and opinions on the benefits and drawbacks of the field. The 2009 meeting will encompass a broad range of cell-based therapeutic approaches to cardiovascular disease.

Research presented at IC3D will touch on topics such as:

  • Clinical studies of stem cell repair of the heart, brain and peripheral arteries
  • New sources of adult stem cells
  • Status of embryonic stem cell research
  • Molecular signaling and cellular responses
  • Models of acute and chronic myocardial injury
  • Methods for application of stem cell products
  • Engineered tissue including in vitro and in vivo studies
  • Imaging and other assessment methods

New sessions for 2009 will include:

  • Focus on peripheral vascular disease
  • An in-depth view of stem cell effects and how to best assess disease states
  • The convergence of cell and tissue modification as methods for enhancing the biologic effects of molecular and cellular agents

WHO: Warren Sherman, M.D., Conference Director, is Director of Cardiac Cell-Based Endovascular Therapies at the Center for Interventional Vascular Therapy at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital and Columbia University Medical Center. Dr. Sherman is a renowned clinical investigator in the field of myocardial regeneration who pioneered a technique for injecting stem cells into the heart. In Rotterdam in May 2001, he performed the first catheter-based injection of stem cells into the heart of a patient with congestive heart failure due to a previous heart attack. At Columbia University Medical Center, researchers led by Dr. Sherman are using the patient's own myoblasts -- progenitor cells found in muscle -- to repair and replace injured cardiac tissue in a process called myogenesis. Dr. Sherman collaborates in studies to improve the outcomes of cell implantation with colleagues at Columbia University Medical Center, all of whom will be presenting their research at the conference.

WHEN: January 13 16, 2008

WHERE: The New York Academy of Medicine, New York, NY
