23-26 May 2017, Heidelberg, Germany
The EMBO Conference for Advances in Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine will take place this May at the EMBL in Heidelberg, Germany, and will aim to provide a comprehensive overview of the various aspects of stem cell biology.
The cellular and molecular properties of normal tissue stem cells will be discussed, as will the properties of the niches that maintain them. The conference will address alterations to stem cell function during ageing, and how stem cells can be used for regenerative purposes and for disease modelling. On this occasion a particular focus will be on ageing/metabolism and the link between these topics and tissue homeostasis/regeneration. These are emerging areas in the stem cell field, with considerable potential and huge societal relevance.
The meeting will also focus on the emerging and state-of-the-art single cell transcriptome techniques that are uncovering novel insights into stem cell populations.
Keynote speakers confirmed:
- Anne Brunet, (Stanford University, USA)
- Hans C. Clevers, (Hubrecht Institute, The Netherlands)
- Michele De Luca, (University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Italy)
