The New York Stem Cell Foundation convened its first annual Translational Stem Cell Research Conference at The Rockefeller University in Manhattan. The conference brings together the most prominent figures in stem cell research from across the United States and the United Kingdom. These pre-eminent scientists presented the latest and most exciting breakthroughs in this revolutionary field of research.
“The New York Stem Cell Foundation is a unifying force that brings the institutions together, allows us to conduct symposia under a common framework, and helps assure the scientific community and young people who are interested in research in this field that there is public support for this research,” said Dr. Harold Varmus.
Conference co-chairs include Drs. Douglas Melton, PhD, Thomas M. Jessell, PhD, and Harold Varmus, MD. The Conference is co-sponsored by the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Columbia University Medical Center, the Helen and Martin Kimmel Center for Stem Cell Biology at New York University School of Medicine, the Mount Sinai School of Medicine and the members of Tri-Institutional Stem Cell Initiative: The Rockefeller University, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and Weill Medical College of Cornell University.
