Past Meetings

Pluripotent Stem Cells in Translation: Preclinical Considerations (March 2012)

The National Institutes of Health and the Food and Drug Administration collaborated on a series of workshops on moving pluripotent stem cell therapies into the clinic. The first meeting, "Pluripotent Stem Cells in Translation: Early Decisions" was held in March 2011 (below). The second meeting, "Pluripotent Stem Cells in Translation: Preclinical Considerations" was held on the NIH campus at Natcher Auditorium on July 10 and 11, 2012. This workshop focused on preclinical animal studies and the issues inherent in performing these studies with cells. Talks were a combination of science and practical matters.

Pluripotent Stem Cells in Translation: Early Decisions (March 2011)

The National Institutes of Health and the Food and Drug Administration collaborated on a series of workshops on moving pluripotent stem cell therapies into the clinic. The first two day workshop, "Pluripotent Cells in Translation: Early Decisions," was held on March 21 and 22, 2011 at Lister Hill Auditorium on the NIH campus. The meeting included participants from industry, academic and clinical scientists, the FDA, and the NIH. The first day covered pluripotency and its challenges, sources of pluripotent cells, and stem cell banks. The second day covered making pluripotent stem cells into a product, product characterization, and emerging technologies.
