2022 overview

The Symposium is coordinated by the University of Wisconsin – Madison Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine Center and the BTC Institute. Cell competition is an emerging field of stem cell biology that has important implications in healthy aging and disease states.  To describe recent advances, this symposium brought together leading researchers studying competition between stem cells and competitive interactions within their niche. The presentations highlighted the approaches to evaluate molecular mechanisms responsible for selective expansion and elimination of cell populations during development, reprogramming and disease.

HIGHLIGHTED ISSUES:

  • Clonal hematopoiesis
  • Cell competition during reprogramming
  • Competitive elimination of stem cells
  • Molecular sensors of cell competition
