The Biology of Regenerative Medicines - 22-24 April 2015 - Hinxton, Cambridge



The Biology of Regenerative Medicines 
22-24 April 2015

Wellcome Trust Genome Campus, Hinxton, Cambridge, UK
Abstract deadline: 2 March 2015 | Registration deadline: 20 March 2015

Registration opens shortly. Please email to register your interest in this conference.

Few topics in contemporary medicine have attracted more attention than stem cells and their potential for enabling the discovery of new regenerative therapies. The aim of the 2nd Wellcome Trust Scientific Conference in this series is to understand the biology that underpins the success or failure of regeneration, and to explore the relationship between stem cell biology and regenerative biology so that both can be fully exploited to treat disease.

This meeting is aimed at scientists involved in developmental and regenerative biology, stem cell research and translational medicine. We welcome the submission of abstracts from all areas relevant to the main theme of the meeting. Several oral presentations will be chosen from the abstracts submitted.
