SCIENCE
The Future of Regenerative Medicine
Recent controversies may overshadow the groundbreaking science and important advances in stem cell research. Join leading scientists and Nobel laureates in a discussion of the future of regenerative medicine, the power of nuclear transfer and the potential of adult stem cell therapies already in clinical development.


ETHICS

Religious Voices on Embryo Research
What would Jesus Do? What about Buddha, Mohammed, Moses, Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, Guru Nanak?
The religious perspective on embryonic stem cell research is often only heard in the context of Western Christian faith. This panel opens the discussion to major world religions. International religious leaders discuss their perspective on embryonic stem cell research and the ethical challenges if any faced by people of different faiths.


BUSINESS
Where's the Money?
Stem Cell Research holds much promise but is seen as a long-term bet by the venture capital community. Young companies struggle to win investment and are vulnerable to the whims of Wall Street. This panel challenges the accepted venture funding model and asks where is the money? What alternative business models are available to stem cell research companies?


PATIENTS
Stem Cells in Patients: A World-Wide Overview of Stem Cell Treatments Today
The Impatient Patient - Patients are crying out for new better treatments and cures for life threatening and debilitating diseases. The promise of stem cell research is tantalizing… How far will patients go to try new untested therapies? How does a person's risk threshold change when faced with diagnosis of an untreatable disease or injury causing paralysis? We hear from patients and patient advocates who tell their personal stories in seeking cures from stem cell therapies.


WORLD
Stem Cell Politics: Global Strategies for Supporting Research
Meet leading international stem cell researchers, organizations, and government representatives. Schedule one-on-one meetings and attend the international showcase of successful international partnerships. Learn how to collaborate on a global basis to accelerate stem cell research.
