Symposium - New York, United States
Stem cells are of increasing importance as a research tool and as a therapeutic option for degenerative diseases. Small molecules have the potential to impact stem cell research in numerous ways. First, stem cells can be used to generate otherwise rare cell types for high-throughput screening of small molecules. Second, small molecules can be used to induce differentiation of stem cells down specific lineages. Third, small molecules can be used to create scaffolding materials that regulate stem cell function and increase the facility of culturing stem cells. Finally, it may be possible to create small molecules that regulate the endogenous stem cells in humans as a therapeutic option. This symposium will explore the intersection of small molecules and stem cells.
