World Stem Cell Summit offers registration discounts to UW-Madison community

August 13, 2008

The UW–Madison Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Center (SCRMC), WiCell Research Institute and Genetics Policy Institute are co-sponsoring the 2008 World Stem Cell Summit on Monday and Tuesday, Sept. 22-23, at the Alliant Energy Center.

The SCRMC and WiCell will help supplement summit registrations for a limited number of UW–Madison faculty, staff, students and trainees. This supplemented fee will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Once the allotted number of registrations is reached, this option will no longer be available on the Web site. UW–Madison affiliates should click on the UW link at the top right of the main summit registration page.

This gathering unites representatives from the entire stem cell spectrum. The World Stem Cell Summit brings together the founding visionary researchers, clinicians, business pathfinders, key policymakers, regulators, advocates, and experts in law and ethics. These experts will present compelling presentations, share information and together chart the future of regenerative medicine.

A special day of free, public science outreach titled “Lab on the Lake” will kick off and complement the summit on Sunday, Sept. 21, at the Pyle Center. More information about Lab on the Lake appears on the main summit Web site.
