Stem cell research is a fast-paced area of biomedical science that offers exciting insights into basic biology and compelling trajectories for therapeutic development. This Cell Press Symposium will highlight recent advances in strategies for controlling stem cell fate and reprogramming somatic cells, progress towards therapeutic applications, and new insights into the molecular basis of pluripotency, differentiation, and transdifferentiation. The meeting aims to foster interactions between a broad, international group of scientists studying multiple aspects of stem cell biology.


Topics List

The session titles are:

  • Mechanisms of Cell Programming and Reprogramming
  • Regulation of Pluripotency
  • Specifying Cell Fate
