This Conference will highlight how stem cells and gene therapies can be used to understand development, create disease models and develop new treatments. These areas dovetail with new advances in cellular therapies and regenerative medicine, and how these technologies are moving into the clinic. Complementing the idea of cell replacement, the conference will address advances in gene therapies, spanning work from vector development to clinical trials.
The ability to generate mini-organs with higher-order function has tremendous potential for disease modeling, drug discovery, and regenerative medicine applications. To build these higher-order structures, researchers are pursuing many strategies, particularly those involving organoids, which harness developmental principles and self-guided assembly, as well as chimeric organ engineering. These efforts have resulted in the development of […]

Stem cells are crucial for organ maintenance throughout life but can also serve as cells of origin for tumor formation. In addition, tumors arising from both stem cell and non-stem cell origins can hijack molecular pathways of stem cell self-renewal, genomic maintenance and metabolic control to enable their deregulated growth. Thus, knowledge of the molecular […]
SY-Stem - a symposium focusing on the next generation of stem cell researchers – is an annual meeting, located in the beautiful city of Vienna. It is organized jointly by the Research Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP) and Institute of Molecular Biotechnology (IMBA). In this two-and-a-half-day event, recognized keynote speakers, as well as aspiring young group leaders will discuss the latest […]
