NY Stem Cell Foundation's 2nd Annual Translational Stem Cell Research Conference

Fs scientific director. Dr. Melton will give the keynote speech. Further sessions will explore the impact human embryonic stem cell research is having on efforts to better understand, and ultimately find more effective treatments and cures for, cancer, neurological disorders, heart disease and diabetes, and auto immune disease.

A full conference pamphlet and registration information is available at www.nyscf.org.

Our inaugural conference was an unprecedented event for New York and reinforced the citys status as a vital national center for stem cell research, said Solomon. With the field of hESC research now at critical scientific and political junctures, the conversations at this years conference will be key to gaining a better understanding of what is on the horizon.

The New York Stem Cell Foundation conference is co-sponsored by the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Columbia University Medical Center, the Helen and Martin Kimmel Center for Stem Cell Biology at New York University School of Medicine, the Mount Sinai School of Medicine and the members of Tri-Institutional Stem Cell Initiative: The Rockefeller University, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and Weill Medical College of Cornell University.

The New York Stem Cell Foundation is a very important organization, because the kinds of problems were trying to solve are far beyond the reach of any one investigator or laboratory, so we need cooperation across the universities to make progress in this area, said Dr. Melton.

We need, desperately, foundations like this, and I would look for the New York Stem Cell Foundation to lead us for quite a while, said Dr. Gearhart.

The Foundations work is important because it allows support of those activities which, at present, the federal government, through the NIH, will simply not support, said Dr. Nurse.

Its a delight to work with people who are passionate about trying to
