Vision Statement:
Adult Stem Cell Therapy and Regenerative Medicine conference (MSC 2015) will have platform and poster sessions emphasizing preclinical and clinical applications of adult-derived stem cells from a variety of human and animal tissues. MSC 2015 will offer a forum for the exchange and discussion of research, ideas, and cutting-edge breakthroughs in translational regenerative medicine.

Target Audience:
Innovators in the use of stem cells in regenerative medicine
The target audience is multifold: new and experienced investigators in the adult stem cell therapy field, students (graduate and postdoctoral), physicians, and commercial entities interested in therapeutic opportunities with these cell types. Junior investigators and students will be given a venue to present and discuss their research in poster sessions and invited presentations.

Conference Objectives:

MSC 2015 will:

  • Feature invited lectures from thought-leaders and provide podium talks, poster sessions, and a venue for investigators and students to present and discuss their research
  • Focus on the translation of adult stem cell and tissue engineering technologies from the bench to the bedside
  • Promote interactions between the research and commercialization communities to accelerate FDA approval
  • Review academic and commercial cell therapy clinical trials in cardiovascular, pulmonary, neurological and immunological fields
  • Include a discussion on “Standardization of MSC Nomenclature: Paracrine versus Markers” by thought leaders in the field
