A global community of key stakeholders will gather on October 2-3 to learn what's new, share ideas, search for solutions and focus on advancing stem cell research from “the bench to the bedside.” The summit will focus on diabetes, cancer, spinal cord injury and paralysis, cardiovascular disease, aging and Parkinson's, ALS and neurological disorders.

The Alliance for Aging Research Executive Director, Daniel Perry, will participate as a guest speaker at The Stem Cell Summit, providing the patient advocate's perspective for the Stem Cells and Disease panel.

The Genetic Policy Institute, Harvard Stem Cell Institute, and Burrill Life Science Media Group have joined together to host The Stem Cell Summit, focusing on the future of stem cell research and its potential to advance treatments for millions suffering from devastating medical conditions. Some highlights of the summit are the Conversations with Expert Luncheon, the Patient Advocate Roundtable Breakfast, and The Stem Cell Summit Awards Dinner.
