Stem Cell Niches Symposium

2016-09-2109:00 to 15:00 Nobel Forum, Karolinska Institutet, Nobels väg 1Campus Solna

The cell-niche interaction is essential for determining stem cell behaviour. This one day symposium addresses cell-niche communication per se, the roles of aging and senescence on the niche, translating in vivo niches to in vitro systems, and technologies for investigating stem cell-niche interactions.
