Researchers from around nation to attend stem cell symposium

UW-Madison announced Friday that Stem Cells in the 4th Dimension, an annual scientific meeting, will focus on how time affects stem cells in terms of development, maturation and aging.

The UW-Madison Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Center and the BioPharmaceutical Technology Center coordinated the event. Four UW-Madison faculty members will serve as moderators for the event and leading researchers and scientists studying stem cells from around the nation will speak, according to a university release.

The morning session will be moderated by UW-Madison associate professor of medicine Craig Atwood. It will feature a presentation from a Stanford University professor of neurology and neurological sciences about how bloodborne factors can modify brain activity.

The afternoon session will include presentations on “lab models of neural, cardiac and pancreatic cells derived from stem cells, and how they can be used in regenerative medicine,” according to the release. A full list of the presenters can be found online.

William Murphy, a co-director of the Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Center, will provide closing remarks.

Stem Cells in the 4th Dimension will be held April 13 at the BioPharmaceutical Technology Center. The registration fee is $100, and a $50 discount is available for students and post-doctoral researchers.
