The 2014 World Stem Cell Report reflects how stem cell research, while beginning as a local initiative, is indeed a global endeavor. With the transversal theme of "regional developments," we focus on complex regulatory, socioethical, and legal issues; meanwhile, we also highlight emerging trends. In addition, the report features novel scientific developments that are paving the path toward clinical translation.
The report benefits from the contribution of a wide range of multidisciplinary and international experts in the field. We seek to bring their knowledge together to look prospectively at new scientific, commercial, ethical, and policy developments. To this end, the Summit provides a unique picture of the international stem cell and regenerative medicine environments.
The 2014 World Stem Cell Report is aligned with the vision of the World Stem Cell Summit and REGMED Capital Conference (Atlanta, Georgia, December 10–12, 2015), the flagship events of the Genetics Policy Institute (GPI). The World Stem Cell Summit is a three-day showcase of innovation, insight, and inspiration. By uniting stem cell and regenerative medicine stakeholders, the Summit represents the largest interdisciplinary and networking meeting of this kind. The REGMED Capital Conference expands access to financing to advance the commercialization opportunities for companies seeking capital.
Our 2014 World Stem Cell Report is a supplement to the peer-reviewed journal Stem Cells and Development.
