The Conference is under the auspices of Aegean Conferences, a non-profit educational organization promoting science through highly visible conferences, workshops and symposia in several scientific fields (see news https://www.aegeanconferences.org/src/App/news)
The topics to be covered during the next meeting include:
Stem Cell Concepts and Models; Regulation of Pluripotency; Stem Cell Heterogeneity; Genome Editing; Modeling Development from Pluripotent Stem Cells- Organoids; Chromatin Regulation during Development and Cell Fate Decisions; Epigenetics of Reprogramming and Differentiation; Stem Cell Niches; Stem Cells and Disease Modeling; iPS Models of Disease Stem Cells and Tumorigenesis; Stem Cell Aging; Therapeutics - Clinical Progress for Stem Cell Therapies.
The scientific sessions will convene in the mornings and early afternoons and will include lectures by invited speakers, as well as talks and poster presentations selected from submitted abstracts.
