Form and Function - Stem Cells in Action

April 27, 2022


April 27, 2022

The objective of this Catalyst Conference is to serve as a preface to the full-length Stem Cell Conference being planned for 2023. The conference will touch upon several areas of stem cell biology including formation of the embryo and lineage commitment, progression and generation of differentiated cells in diverse models, including both pluripotent cell models and tissue-specific stem cells, in health and disease. Use of state-of-the-art cellular, molecular and genetic approaches will be highlighted, along with emerging and new developments in the use of organoids in vitro to dissect stem cell behavior, as well as commitment and formation of functional tissues.
