The World Stem Cell Summit agenda is developed with one goal in mind: to deliver cures. To do this, we must align patient advocacy, industry, science, policy and funding. This year, at our 8th annual World Stem Cell Summit, we are focused on translational solutions, bringing together the brightest minds from all stakeholder groups. It’s an experience you won’t want to miss.

Summit speakers have been featured on the national stage over the past few weeks. Today, George Daley of Children's Hospital Boston and Harvard University was interviewed on NPR for a story entitled, "Scientists Create Fertile Eggs From Mouse Stem Cells." Susan Solomon of the New York Stem Cell Foundation has received more than 17,000 hits for her TED Talk, "Realizing the Promise of Stem Cell Research," and Paolo Macchiarini, of the Karolinska Instituet, was featured in the New York Times for completing the first “bioartificial” organ transplant of its kind.

Devyn Smith, Ph.D, Chief Operating Officer, Neusentis Research Unit and PTx Clinical Research, Pfizer Worldwide R&D, is also speaking at the Summit. “Pfizer is engaged in stem cell research and we’re excited about our projects which are moving into the clinic. It’s a critical time for the development of the whole stem cell community. Partnerships and collaborations are vital to ensure that progress continues, and the World Stem Cell Summit is the place where we can meet a complete range of stakeholders in the field for exchange of ideas and discuss key themes,” he said.

Primary researchers to philanthropists and policy makers will all be there. More than 225 organizations have endorsed the Summit. The Summit provides an ideal setting for networking, drawing people from over 25 countries in cross-disciplinary pursuits. Join us!
