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.

Presentations:

Steven A. Goldman

University of Copenhagen, Denmark and University of Rochester Medical Center, NY, United States

Steve Goldman is Professor of Neuroscience and Neurology at both the University of Copenhagen, and the University of Rochester Medical Center. In Copenhagen, he co-directs its Center for Translational Neuromedicine, while at Rochester, he is the URMC Distinguished Professor of Neuroscience and co-directs its Center for Translational Neuromedicine. Goldman obtained his PhD from Rockefeller University and his MD from Cornell, and did his residency in neurology at New York Hospital-Cornell and Memorial Sloan-Kettering. Goldman is interested in cell genesis in the adult brain, with a focus on the use of patient-specific stem and progenitor cells - and in particular their derived glia - in both modeling and treating those myelin disorders, neurodegenerative diseases and psychiatric conditions in which glial pathology is causally involved.

Ricardo Dolmetsch

Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research, Inc., MA, United States

Dr. Ricardo Dolmetsch is Global Head of Neuroscience at the Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research. His group is responsible for developing medicines to treat neuropsychiatric, neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative diseases. The group is focused on targets and mechanisms that have been validated in humans either by human genetic studies or by astute clinical observations. The department is a world leader in developing preclinical models of disease using human induced pluripotent stem cells and has also developed novel methods for studying the function of circuits in the brain.
Ricardo joined Novartis from Stanford University where he was a Professor in the school of medicine.
Ricardo received his undergraduate degree from Brown University, his graduate degree from Stanford University and was a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University.

Clare Parish

The Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health, VIC, Australia

A/Prof Clare Parish is a Viertel Senior Medical Research Fellow and heads the Stem Cells and Neural Development laboratory at the Florey Institute of Neuroscience & Mental Health, Melbourne. She obtained her PhD from Monash (Australia), postdoctoral training at the Karolinska Institute (Sweden), and established her research group in 2008. Clare has a broad research interest relating to repairing the injured brain. She places a strong emphasis on understanding neural development, with the idea that recapitulating many of these early events will influence regeneration. Her major research themes include: understanding neural development; directed differentiation of human and mouse pluripotent stem cells; molecular mechanisms underlying axonal plasticity, and improving cell-replacement therapy for brain repair. Clare has >80 publications (with >50% related to stem cell research).
