World Stem Cell Report
The World Stem Cell Report, published and distributed to the attendees of the World Stem Cell Summit, is a compilation of interviews and articles providing a framework for understanding the burgeoning field of stem cells and regenerative medicine. In the 2016 World Stem Cell Report, you will find articles from STEM CELLS Translational Medicine that represent a panorama of converging technologies leading to biomedical breakthroughs unimagined merely a decade ago.
The World Stem Cell Summit focuses on world-class science and also provides panels that are understandable to the public, the media, and the investor. By understanding that patients and consumers are the underpinning and support for this field, we can create public appreciation for the emerging science.
