  1. Dear Dr. Knoepfler

    As someone who is in the industry of cancers and stem cell biology trying to keep in the loop of the academic world, this list of meeting is exceptionally helpful. I recently attended one of the meetings you listed that I wouldn’t have found otherwise and it was one of the most useful conferences I’ve ever been to. I sincerely hope you keep this list going for the years to come so that I can keep up to date and upcoming meetings.

    All the best and thanks for taking your time to keep this list and the blog going.

    Please have a glance at the conference Website for detailed information. The conference is designed to bring together scientific researchers, health professionals, stem cell and cancer researchers to discuss and analyze the development and to catalyze the networking between the branches of Cell Science & Stem Cell Research and to facilitate the amalgamation of the complementary scientific efforts in the academia and industry to achieve common scientific goals.

    Don’t miss the opportunity of global networking and exchanging novel and current research in the core of Stem Cell Research.

    Cell Science -2014 emphasizes on

    Track 1: Stem Cell and Cancer Cell Therapy Track 7: Genetic Engineering

    Track 2: Stem Cell Transplantation Track 8: Cell signaling technology

    Track 3: Tumour Science Track 9: Apoptosis and Disease

    Track 4: Leukemia’s: Antileukemic Drugs Track 10: Cell Science & Development

    Track 5: Nanotechnology: Stem Cells and Cancer Track 11: Stem cell and Bioinformatics

    Track 6: Tissue Engineering Track 12: Stem Cell Medicine: Social and Political Challenges

  6. Hello Paul – I saw your comment (reply to David) re: Till & McCulloch – thought you might be interested in this hmmm odd look at stem cells, on Dalhousie Univerity’s ethics blog. (I was doing thesis on a different topic but after a prof said there was no place in academia for humor and that bugged me enough, I focused on this, rigorous data in humanities). Even I was surprised at the results…
    Kind regards

    1. This year I will be at Till & McCulloch, World Stem Cell Summit, and the UC Berkeley Stem Cell meeting this coming Saturday.

      Next year I will be at ISSCR, but not sure if I’ll get an invite to that or just go, and haven’t decided about other meetings.
