NYSCF Speaks at International Stem Cell Meeting in Stockholm
NYSCF once again had a large presence at the thirteenth annual meeting of the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) in Stockholm, Sweden. NYSCF Scientist Dr. Mitsutoshi Yamada was invited to give a talk on his research using nuclear transfer for the prevention of mitochondrial diseases; a key topic after the UK Parliament voted to approve starting clinical trials using these techniques for the prevention of disease this spring.
Each year, the ISSCR annual meeting travels to a different location around the globe bringing together top researchers and organizations for the intensive, four-day event, this year held at the Stockholmsmassan Exhibition and Congress Centre. Next June, the fourteenth annual meeting will be held in San Francisco, California.
