Course Registration


The purpose of this conference is to update physicians, scientists, nurses and other healthcare professionals, trainees, and the general public in the greater Midwest region on:

1) the past, present, and future of adult stem cell therapy;
2) new developments in adult stem cell research;
3) diagnosis and treatment guidelines related to cell therapy for various medical conditions;
4) management of patients using these new cell transplantation technologies; and
5) the ethical use of regulated adult stem cells.

Upon completion of this course the participant should be able to:
  1. Describe new findings with adult stem cells and what is necessary to translate these observations into potential patient therapies.
  2. Identify and discuss past, ongoing, as well as possible future clinical trials using adult stem cells for repair/regeneration of various tissues and organs
  3. Describe various disease categories for which adult stem cell therapy may prove beneficial, and the global efforts to facilitate wider applications of such potential therapy

Payment is required at the time of registration. Only registrations accompanied with payment will be accepted.  Please register in advance.
