Stem Cell Biotechnology Workshop
09/11/2013 - 09/12/2013
The Stem Cell Biotechnology Workshop will be held September 11-12, 2013 in the Wake Forest Biotech Place Conference Center in the Wake Innovations Quarter on the downtown campus of Wake Forest University. Our featured speaker is Dr. Mahendra Rao, Director of the NIH Center for Regenerative Medicine (CRM), a community resource that works to provide the infrastructure to support and accelerate the clinical translation of stem cell-based technologies, and to develop widely available resources to be used as standards in stem cell research. For a variety of patient populations, the Center facilitates generation of iPSCs, as well as the derivation or isolation of other types of stem cells. The Center provides services and information to both the intramural and extramural NIH communities that facilitate the use of stem cell technologies for therapeutic purposes and for screening efforts.
