overview

The Symposium is coordinated by the Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Center, at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the BTC Institute. It brought together leading researchers in immunotherapies and stem cell biology. The presentations highlighted advances in immunotherapies, as well as efforts to understand and overcome immunological barriers to cell-based therapies.

highlighted issues

  • Describing translational uses for human pluripotent stem cell-derived and MSC-derived immune therapies
  • Advancing natural killer cell-based immunotherapies
  • Identifying and overcoming immunological barriers for human pluripotent stem cell-based therapies
  • Exploring bioengineering approaches for immunological modulation

The registration fee is $120; discounted to $60 for students and post-doctoral researchers.
