Panel Discussion: Is iPS Cell Research Lost In Translation?
Australasian Society for Stem Cell Research Conference
Monday 15th November, 1.30-3.00 PM, Melbourne Convention Centre, Melbourne
Heralded as a major breakthrough in stem cell technologies, iPS cells are
reprogrammed adult body cells that behave like pluripotent stem cells. A
panel and audience will question this technology. What are iPS cells, true
pluripotent cells or a culture artifact? What are benefits of this research?
Will iPS cell technology be a ‘disease in a dish’? Is it hyped? Or, is it
the next biotechnology breakthrough? Should cell donors share in any future
Participants include: Professor Graham Jenkin, Professor Justin St John
(Monash University), Louise Laurent (Scripps, USA), Kuldip Sidhu (University
of NSW), Alan Petersen (Monash University), Kenneth Chien (Harvard
University, USA), Ernst Wolvetang (Queensland University), Peter Mountford
(Neopac Ltd), Varlli Beetham (Frederick Ataxia Association)
