    Conference: The Stem Cell Niche

    About the conference The stem cell niche is the local environment where stem cells reside. The niche instructs the stem cell to either self-renew or differentiate. As such there is a great interest in the stem cell field to further characterize the niche as well as to understand how it controls stem cell behavior. The niche is important both during embryonic development, tissue homeostasis (regeneration) as well as during pathological conditions, such as in cancer.
