NCATS’ Stem Cell Translational Science Workshop
September 26 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
On Sept. 26, 2017, NCATS will host the Workshop on Translational Challenges of Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPSC) from 8:15 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland. The event will include discussions about iPSC collaborative opportunities and best practices in translational iPSC research.
Workshop goals include:
• Highlighting the biological and technological challenges of advancing iPSCs into clinical applications and drug discovery;
• Evaluating the state-of-the field of iPSC translation and discussing critical steps for quality control, standardization and reproducibility;
• Discussing methods of protocol development/optimization and molecular and functional analyses; and
• Seeking input from experts on areas of prioritization and tractable strategies for the iPSC field.
Space is limited so be sure to register early.
