FROM CARDIOVASCULAR DEVELOPMENT TO REGENERATIVE MEDICINE
Organisers: Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute, St Vincent's Hospital & UNSW St Vincent's Clinical School
Incorporating the annual cardiac theme meeting of Stem Cells Australia and the annual meeting of the Australian Network of Cardiac and Vascular Developmental Biologists.
Sunday 6 November - Tuesday 8 November, 2016
This year’s Victor Chang International Symposium will explore the exciting, rapidly moving and controversial field of regenerative medicine and stem cell research. The meeting will detail how regeneration in permissive models helps us understand and overcome the roadblocks to heart regeneration in adult humans. It will span new discoveries in heart and vascular development and growth pathways, and explore the role that stem cell systems, immune cells and cardiomyocytes play in heart regeneration and rejuvenation. It will consider the state-of-the-art in human cardiac stem cell clinical trials, and cover the ethics and public perceptions of stem cell research and provision of unproven commercial therapies. The Symposium will feature international leaders and opinion makers, as well as the emerging leaders in this field in Australia.
A public lecture will be held on Tuesday 8 November, Stem Cells - Hype and Hope, which all are welcome to attend.
