International stem cell meeting in Kobe, Japan

A critical mass of leading experts will meet from 1st to 3rd September in Kobe, Japan, to discuss and summarize the current status in the highly contentious field of stem cell research and regenerative medicine. It is expected that the meeting will help to clarify the potential and remaining challenges of this promising research area. The workshop is jointly organized by the Ernst Schering Research Foundation (Germany), the Max Planck Society (Germany) and the Riken Center for Developmental Biology (Japan) as part of the "Germany in Japan year".

Regenerative medicine is one of the frontiers in biomedical and clinical research. Its aim is to restore or improve the functioning of organs and tissues afflicted with congenital conditions or the ravages of injury, disease or age. It is a dynamic research field with great promise and hopes, delivering many new and, at the same time, provocative insights.

The aim of the workshop is to review the current understanding of the recent achievements made in this fast moving research area and to discuss the future potential of this field of research, bringing together leading experts from the rapidly growing fields of stem cell biology and developmental biology.

The workshop focuses on the following main topics:

  • Stem cell properties
  • Transdifferentiation and fusion of stem cells
  • Identification of stem cells
  • The role of stem cells in reproduction
  • Neural stem cells

The goal is to cover the full spectrum of stem cell research from basic to applied research with a view to potential therapies. The meeting is expected to provide participating scientists from all over the world with the opportunity to accumulate and enhance their knowledge as well as provide a platform for scientists to network with fellow scientists.
