For Vendor Information:
The Inland Empire Stem Cell Consortium (IESCC) is comprised of researchers undertaking stem cell research at the University of California, Riverside (UCR), Loma Linda University (LLU), and California State University at San Bernardino (CSUSB). Approximately 24 laboratories belong to the Consortium.
The goals of the Consortium are to create a collegial environment for interaction of stem cell laboratories in the Inland Empire, to establish broad based training opportunities for students in stem cell biology, and to provide a forum for making the stem cell research in our geographical area better known to people in our communities. To accomplish these goals, we are undertaking joint activities that include seminar series, outreach programs and an annual symposium.
This year the symposium will be hosted by Loma Linda University and the theme will be “’Stem Cells and Neurodegenerative Diseases”. We are pleased to have Dr. Philip Schwartz from the Children's Hospital of Orange County Research Institute as our keynote speaker. A mini-biography can be found here. Presentations will also be given by some members of the IESCC.
We will also have a session focused on the IESCC Outreach activities.
On behalf of everyone involved in the organization of this symposium, thanks for attending and we hope you will enlarge your vision on stem cell research and create new potential collaborations within the IESCC.
Registration ends April 3rd, 2013. Registration is required for all participants, so please sign up. Abstracts are also due by April 3rd, 2013. Awards will be given to the top three outstanding student posters. We look forward to seeing you there!
