Concurrent Session

Concurrent Group III

The concurrent sessions cover topics from across the spectrum of stem cell research. Each session, framed by a brief topic overview, includes one or two invited speakers whose work highlights leading research in the field. The session is rounded out with four or more abstract-selected speakers who, combined with the invited talks, give an excellent snapshot of the most current work on the topic. The five concurrent sessions run in parallel and attendees are encouraged to move between sessions to hear talks of interest. Concurrent sessions are held Thursday, Friday, and Saturday afternoons.

Andrew George Elefanty

Murdoch Childrens Research Institute, VIC, Australia

Andrew Elefanty MB BS FRACP PhD. Goup leader, Blood Cell Differentiation and Disease laboratory, Murdoch Childrens Research Institute, Melbourne.

Andrew Elefanty trained as a physician and completed a PhD in leukaemogenesis at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research. He studied globin gene regulation at the National Institute for Medical Research in London before returning to the Hall Institute to pursue interests in developmental haematopoiesis and mouse embryonic stem cell differentiation. He moved to Monash University to initiate studies with human embryonic stem cells. His laboratory relocated to the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute to continue work focused on pluripotent stem cell differentiation to haematopoietic lineages. His laboratory aims to model blood diseases and generate cells for transplantation.
