World Stem Cell Summit Coming to Baltimore

World Stem Cell Summit to be held in Baltimore
Baltimore Convention Center September 21-23, 2009

This summit will attract more than 1,200 experts from more than 25 countries and across the United States. It will feature more than 100 speakers, including governors, federal officials, and top researchers and scientists and will discuss new federal stem cell policies, scientific breakthroughs, and human-interest stories. This is your chance to meet and talk to all the experts at one location and time with on-the-record sessions, press briefings and interviews.

The World Stem Cell Summit is the only conference that combines this mix of researchers, policy makers, business leaders, ethicists, legal experts and patient-advocates to share, explore, and discuss the latest breakthroughs and advancements in the emerging field of stem cells.

Demonstrations and discussions will range from tracking how reprogrammed stem cells (iPSCs) compare to embryonic stem cells, the prospects for the emerging regenerative medicine industry, the impact of new Federal guidelines, regenerative medicine for wounded soldiers and civilians, medical tourism issues and how new devices such as a stem cell integrated fluidic circuits might soon automate and simplify the entire process.
