Cell therapy today:
Achievements, hopes and hype

9 – 12 September 2015 | Manchester, UK

 

About the conference

Stem cell therapy has saved hundreds of thousands of lives since the establishment of bone marrow transplantation half a century ago but still faces significant hurdles for tissues other than blood and epithelia.
Notwithstanding the many difficulties, clinical trials are ongoing that are providing critical information to refine protocols and implement tools aimed at achieving significant clinical efficacy.
At the same time, many poorly controlled or uncontrolled trials are also taking place, muddling the picture and often unjustifiably raising patient expectations and hopes.
Furthermore, the ethical implications of these therapies and their future impact on the economics of health provision are likely to be significant.
This EMBO Conference will focus on the clinical translation of stem cell based research, current trials, pre-clinical work as the foundation for future ones and the ethical and economical impact of these novel therapies.
Major experts in stem cell translational medicine, leading clinicians running these trials, as well as bioethicists and economists will convene to discuss, learn and exchange views on this rapidly evolving and still partly controversial field.

Selection criteria for oral presentations

However, we will give priority to oral presentations given by early stage researchers (post-docs) rather than PIs.
