51st Miami Winter Symposium Will Focus on Stem Cells
The 51st Miami Winter Symposium, to be held January 28-31, 2018, at the Hyatt Regency in Miami, will focus entirely on stem cells.
“We will provide a unique overview of the most relevant topics within the field — stem cell reprogramming and differentiation, hematopoietic stem cells, stem cells in cancer, stem cells in vision, stem cell engineering and stem cells and gene therapy clinical trials,” said symposium founder William J. Whelan, Ph.D., D.Sc., FRS, professor and chairman emeritus of the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. “Expert international speakers will give invited plenary talks supplemented by 12 selected ‘Spotlight’ talks and a large poster session.”
Joshua M. Hare, M.D., the Louis Lemberg Professor of Medicine and founding director of the Interdisciplinary Stem Cell Institute, is chair of the Program Committee and will open the symposium.
The conference organizers are offering fee waivers to all faculty, staff and graduate students of the Miller School who apply through the University of Miami portal. Submission of an abstract will assure priority, with one waiver given per abstract. The deadline for abstract submissions is November 20. More information, registration and abstract submissions are available here.
