Why attend?

This symposium provides an interactive forum for stem cell and molecular biologists studying pluripotency and its impact on cancer. Major emphases are cancer growth and stem cell self-renewal mechanisms, their regulation by epigenetic means and non-coding RNAs. As such, the meeting is designed to connect scientists working in some of the most intensely studied areas of research, not usually interacting in a concise conference setting.


  • Stem cells in cancer
  • Stem cells, cancer & metastasis
  • Stem cell aging & metabolism
  • Non-coding RNAs in stem cells
  • Epigenetics and cancer genomics
