Event Details

 2014 Stem Cell Symposium

TRI & IHBI QUT Conference for the Biology and Clinical Application of Mesenchymal Stromal Cells

A host of international and national speakers will address the cellular and molecular biology of mesenchymal stem cells, mesenchymal stromal cells, induced pluripotent stem cells, bioengineering applications for stem cell therapies and the results of clinical trials using stem cells and their progenitors.

International speakers

Professor Frank Barry, National University of Ireland

The host response to allogeneic mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs)

Professor Barry is a principle investigator at the Regenerative Medicine Institute.  He directs a large group of researchers who focus on the development of new repair strategies in stem cell therapy and gene therapy in orthopaedics.

Professor Katarina Le Blanc, Karolinska Institute and Huddinge Hospital, Sweden    

The impact of MSCs on the innate and adaptive immune systems

and

The role of MSCs in the management of graft-versus-host disease and other serious diseases

Professor Le Blanc pioneered the use of mesenchymal stromal cells to treat graft-versus-host disease, which is a common and sometimes fatal complication of bone marrow transplants. She has also investigated the immunological properties of these cells in an attempt to determine their method of action.

 

National speakers:

Dr Dimitrios Cakouros, University of Adelaide
Epigenetics of MSCs
