WISCONSIN STEM CELL SYMPOSIUM



From Stem Cells to Blood

HELD: April 30, 2014

BioPharmaceutical Technology Center
5445 East Cheryl Parkway
Fitchburg/Madison, WI 53711

BROCHURE

OVERVIEW: The Symposium wass coordinated by the Blood Research Program, and the Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Center, at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and the BTC Institute. It brought together leading researchers who are investigating how stem cells that give rise to blood develop and function, and how analyzing their mechanisms yields principles of stem/progenitor cell biology, as well as insights into diseases such as cancer.

HIGHLIGHTED ISSUES:

  • Genesis and regulation of hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells
  • Stem cell genomes/epigenomes
  • Stem cell microenvironment
  • Tumor initiating cells
