Wisconsin Stem Cell Symposium to focus on blood

World stem cell leaders will converge on Promega’s BioPharmaceutical
Technology Center in Fitchburg, Wisconsin, on April 30 for the 9th
Annual Wisconsin Stem Cell Symposium: From Stem Cells to Blood.

Coordinated by the nonprofit BioPharmaceutical Technology Center Institute, the University of Wisconsin-Madison Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Center
and the UW-Madison Blood Research Program, this year’s symposium is
focused on how the stem cells that give rise to blood develop and

It will also look at the diversity of insights stem cell

Highlighted topics include genesis and regulation of progenitor cells
and hematopoietic stem cells, stem cell genomes/epigenomes, stem cell
microenvironment, and tumor initiating cells.
