Crick symposium: Tissue stem cells - diversity of identities and functions
Wednesday 15 October, 2:00 PM 2014 to 6:30 PM 2014
Malet St, London, Gt Lon, WC1E 7HU (View Map)

In recent years, research on stem cells has focused increasingly on the heterogeneity of stem cell populations and the diversity of their functions. In this symposium, leading stem cell biologists will discuss how different stem cells contribute to tissue development, homeostasis, regeneration and cancer.
