Concurrent Session

Concurrent Group I

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.

Hossein Baharvand

Royan Institute, Iran

Hossein Baharvand is distinguished Professor and Director of Royan Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Technology. For the first time in Iran, he generated the mouse and human embryonic stem cells (2003) and induced pluripotent stem cells (2008). He has focused his research interests on improving the translational research and regenerative medicine mainly through the understanding of stem cells and developmental biology and biologically inspired engineering. He has published more than 280 peer-reviewed papers and eleven books.
