Events for Researchers
Intestinal Stem Cell: Niche Interactions in Health & Disease Conference
October 07-10, 2021
The past ten years have seen an explosion of information regarding intestinal stem cells (ISCs), due to an improved ability to identify ISCs, follow their fates, and manipulate ISCs in vitro. The next frontier in the ISC field is understanding the role that dysregulated ISC behavior plays in the etiology of disease, and conversely, the impact of intestinal disease on proper ISC function. This meeting will bring together a diverse group of investigators to discuss topics such as how the environment of the small intestine and colon impacts ISC behavior in healthy and diseased states, how ISC behavior and the niche differ along the proximal-distal axis of the intestine, and the strengths of various models for investigating the relationship between ISCs, the niche, and the onset and propagation of disease states.
Short Course: Mouse Development, Stem Cells & Cancer
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory – Long Island, NY
This intensive lecture and laboratory course is designed for scientists, typically at the early principal investigator, postdoctoral or graduate stages, interested in using mouse models to study mammalian development, stem cells and cancer. The lecture portion of the course, taught by leaders in the field, provides the conceptual basis for contemporary research in embryogenesis, organogenesis in development and disease, embryonic, adult and induced pluripotent stem cells and cancer biology. The laboratory and workshop portions of the course provide hands-on introduction to engineering of mouse models, stem cell technologies and tissue analyses.
2021 Musculoskeletal Biology & Regeneration Meeting
Washington University Musculoskeletal Research Center & the Center of Regenerative Medicine
May 6- 7, 2021
Washington University Medical School Campus – St. Louis, MI
Scientific sessions will highlight the importance of adult stem and progenitor cells in regenerating musculoskeletal tissues. Themes include regeneration in the setting of injury and inflammation, and cell and biomaterials approaches for bone, cartilage and muscle regeneration. The program will also include a career development session for trainees and early stage investigators, with talks on funding mechanisms and how to effectively communicate your work.
10th International Meeting, Stem Cell Network NRW
Stem Cell Network NRW
March 29-30, 2021
Eurogress, Monheimsallee – Germany
Since 2002, the Stem Cell Network North Rhine-Westphalia organizes its International Meeting every two years. With regularly more than 600 participants, this is one of the largest congresses in this field of research in Europe. The Stem Cell Network NRW brings together stem cell research activities using a unique, transdisciplinary approach and interconnects them nationally and globally. The focus lies on promoting early career researchers, translating research results into biomedical applications, and conducting research into the ethical, legal, and social-scientific implications of stem cell research as well as communicating this in politics and society.
4th Global Aesthetics Conference
November 5-8, 2020
Loews Hotel-Miami Beach, FL
This multi-specialty meeting, organized by Global Aesthetics is open to “core physicians” only and endorsed by ISAPS as well as The Multi-Specialty Foundation. It is the first of its kind and includes a world renowned faculty from both the U.S. and abroad.
The NYSCF Conference
The New York Stem Cell Foundation
October 20-21, 2020
The Rockefeller University – New York, NY
The NYSCF Conference is the leading scientific meeting on translational stem cell research. It annually convenes over 500 participants from academia, industry, government, non-profits, and patient groups. This year’s keynote will be given by Carl H. June, MD, of the University of Pennsylvania. Additional speakers will include world-renowned, multi-disciplinary scientists, who will present their latest findings about the transformative impact of stem cell research on numerous diseases with a high unmet need.
Advances in Stem Cell Research: From Single Cells to Organs
International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR)
October 12-14, 2020
Institut Pasteur – Paris, France
The International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR), French Society for Stem Cell Research (FSSCR), and Belgium Society for Stem Cell Research (BeSSCR) are partnering to feature exciting topics at the frontier of the stem cell field, including self-organization and tissue engineering, emerging technologies in single cell research, new insights into stem cell biology, and advances in regenerative medicine. Join us and hear from world-leading experts in Paris.
Tissue Plasticity: Preservation and Alteration of Cellular Identity
Ophir Klein, Ramesh A. Shivdasani & Stacey S. Huppert
October 4-7, 2020
Doubletree by Hilton – Park City, UT
The conference represents a unique opportunity for researchers in diverse fields to visit evolving concepts in cellular plasticity and the molecular mechanisms and physiological consequences of altered adult cell identity in vivo. Alterations in cell fate can be harnessed to treat disease, but uncontrolled plasticity can destabilize cell commitment and contribute toward neoplasia. The cellular and molecular underpinnings of cellular plasticity provide insights into disease processes and enable new therapies. This conference will explore the diverse mechanisms that underlie plasticity in different tissues and contexts. By bringing together leading scientists in stem cell, developmental, regenerative, and cancer biology, this interdisciplinary conference will highlight common principles and unique features of cellular plasticity in different tissues and examine the therapeutic potential of this process.
Stem Cell and Gene Therapy for Neurodevelopmental Disorders Meeting
UC Davis Health
September 25-26, 2020
UC Davis MIND Institute Auditorium – Sacramento, CA
The conference is strongly focused on evidence-based science. This is an early discussion of how to develop safe and effective treatments for children suffering from disorders caused by single – gene defects. In bringing these novel cell and gene therapy trials from bench to bedside and into routine clinical practice, many scientists, physicians, healthcare, regulatory, manufacturing and other staff members work together in large teams. Our goal is to enhance collaborative research in the fields of Cell & Gene Therapy for Neuro-developmental disorders.
Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine [RESCHEDULED]
International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR)
September 11-13, 2020 [Rescheduled for Future Date]
Shanghai Tech University – Shanghai, China
The International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR), together with ShanghaiTech University and Guangzhou Regenerative Medicine and Health Guangdong Laboratory, are pleased to announce this meeting which will highlight topics from cell fate and pluripotency to disease modeling and clinical translation of cell therapies, dissecting the role of stem cells in basic biology and therapeutics alike.
