Symposium: Stem Cell Niches
This symposium aims to cover how a stem cell niche comes into existence, how to identify a niche, how the niche is maintained and how we can recreate these conditions in vitro for stem cell therapies, screening and cutting edge basic biology.
This 2nd edition of the Stem Cell Niches Symposium gathers some leading scientists working on diverse model organisms and stem cell systems in tissue homeostasis as well as disease and aging specifically focusing on the instructive cues provided by the stem cell niche.
