We are pleased to inform you that we are looking forward to organize our 1st CME cum Workshop on “Stem cell therapy and research” on 27th and 28th December,2011 at Swabhumi, Kolkata, under the auspices of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Cancer Research Institute, Kolkata in collaboration with Department of Science and Technology, Government of India, Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR).

Though main focus areas for our discussions would be advances of bone marrow stem cell transplantation,umbilical cord blood stem cell transplantation in hematologic and other malignancies we will present advances of stem cell research in other cancers also. Discussion will be on research in the cellular and molecular mechanisms controlling self-renewal and differentiation of both normal and cancer stem cells. Topics that will be explored in this meeting are cancer stem cell micro environmental interactions, self-renewal regulation in normal and malignant stem cells, cellular reprogramming mechanisms, new markers for stem cells and cancer stem cells and cancer stem cells as therapeutic targets.

A hand on workshop is arranged on second day of CME where Flowcytometry and detection of Cancer Stem Cell, Umbilical Cord Blood Collection and Cryopreservation, Cord Blood Stem Cell Culture and Mesenchymal Differentiation, Molecular HLA Typing, Establishment of Cancer Cell Line will be presented byeminent clinician-researchers.
