Stem Cell Biology

The meeting will focus on the basic biology of stem cells and the dynamic interactions between stem cells and their microenvironment or niche. Topics will include the mechanisms controlling stem cell proliferation, differentiation, pluripotency and reprogramming. Emerging concepts about the regulation of multipotent cells during early embryo development, tissue regeneration and tumor progression will be emphasized.

Tentative Topics:
Stem cell-niche interactions
Imaging stem cell behavior
Asymmetric cell division
Epithelial, neural and
hematopoietic stem cells
Tissue regeneration and repair
Lineage determination
Pluripotency and epigenetics
Reprogramming and plasticity
