Dr Shelly Heimfeld, Director of the Cellular Therapy Laboratory at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, presented at the Cord Blood Focus Day at last year's Stem Cells USA & Regenerative Medicine Congress. He presented on the topic, âImproving therapeutic strategies using hematopoietic progenitor banked cells.'
In his presentation, Shelly gives an overview on:
- Culturing and expanding cord blood cells using cytokine signaling systems
- Evaluation and testing in a mismatched setting
- The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Transplant Program: an update on clinical research
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.
