5th Annual International Meeting of the Portuguese Society for Stem Cells and Cellular Therapies

The SPCE-TC is organizing its 5th Annual International Meeting. This society was created in 2004 and congregates Portuguese scientists working overseas and in several Portuguese scientific institutions and companies. Its main aim is to promote the discussion of different subjects such as the future of stem cells research, potentialities of some findings for posterior clinical applications, ethical and legal problems and to encourage cooperative research between scientists with different backgrounds.
The 5th Annual International Meeting (www.spce-tc.org) is designed to examine some of the newest concepts, technical approaches, and recent findings related to the topic of stem cells and cellular therapies. The “state of the art” of many aspects of stem and cell therapy research will be discussed. The meeting will include oral and poster sessions, round table discussions and keynote lectures. Many current topics in this interdisciplinary area of research will be highlighted through several keynote lectures given by world recognized scientists.
