The Future of Stem Cells

IAS Focused Program on Frontiers in Stem Cell Research
13 – 15 Jan 2016

Stem cell research has attracted much attention and gained strong momentum over the past 15 years, due to new breakthroughs in the field, the availability of new and powerful techniques, and the vast potential of stem cells in the regeneration of tissues damaged by injury or disease. As regional pioneers in this field, IAS and the Division of Life Science at HKUST co-organized a focused program on Frontiers in Stem Cells Research to further promote, spark interest, and stimulate discussion in the area of
stem cell biology.

With over a hundred leading scientists and talented researchers assembled, topics covering neural stem cells, muscle stem cells, and induced pluripotent stem cells were discussed.
