Thank you very much to all participants, who helped us to successfully carry out the 13th Copenhagen Bioscience Conference.
In recent years, Stem cell research has exploded with potential future applications in regenerative medicine, disease modelling and drug testing. However, to fully embrace this unprecedented potential, scientists have to further understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms that govern the ability of stem cells to self-renew and differentiate into the diverse range of specialized cells. This meeting takes the concept of the niche in the broadest possible sense focusing on understanding how external cues link with intrinsic stem cell and developmental programmes, to understand the general principles that govern differentiation and how they malfunction in disease. As such, “The Stem Cell Niche,” will bring together world-leading researchers in stem and progenitor cell biology in enviroment that stimulates discussion and the exchange of ideas very similar to a Gordon conference. The topics will focus on key challenges in stem cell biology including “Cancer Stem Cells”, “Stem Cells of Mesodermal Origin”, “Reprogramming and Pluripotency”, “Neural Stem Cells”, “Tissue Homeostasis and Repair” and much more.
Some applicants will be invited to give a short talk during the conference based on their submitted abstract. Selected applicants will be notified in the beginning of March 2018.
Registration fee, accommodation and local costs for all approved applicants are covered by the Novo Nordisk Foundation. Only travel expenses to and from the conference venue at own expense. For more practical information click here.
