Stem Cells: Plenty of Hope, but what is the Progress? Researchers have been slowly learning how to best use stem cells, what types to use and how to deliver them to the body — findings that are not singularly transformational, but progressive and pragmatic. Given the enormous promise of stem cell therapies for so many devastating diseases, it is important to simultaneously pursue research on Stem Cells in clinical applications.  Join us in discussing more of these exciting issues, with our reputable speakers and panellists in the latest edition of MACT Symposium 2017!
