Dr Mark Walters, Director of the CHO Blood and Marrow Transplant Program at Children's Hospital Oakland, presented at the Cord Blood Focus Day at last year's Stem Cells USA & Regenerative Medicine Congress. He presented on the topic, â€˜Transplantation using allogeneic and autologous stem cell donations.'
In his presentation, Mark gives an overview on:
- Transplantation for children with Î²-thalassemia major and sickle cell disease: an update
- Innovative research to reduce complications after transplantation for patients with these diseases
- Clinical investigations to study the role of sibling donor and unrelated donor umbilical cord blood transplantation for hemoglobinopathies
The Cord Blood Focus Day was so well received last year, that this year it is being launched as its own conference, the World Cord Blood Congress! It will be taking place alongside Stem Cells USA & Regenerative Medicine Congress, meaning double the content and double the networking.
