Plenary Session

Plenary



The seven plenary sessions are the core of the ISSCR Annual Meeting, featuring leaders in stem cell and related fields. The plenary sessions showcase speakers who will inspire and invigorate all attendees with cutting-edge research and thought. Award lectures and other featured lectures are also presented in the plenary sessions.

Plenary II: Recapitulating Development From Stem Cells

6/20/2018
16:00 - 18:00

Presentations:

Mitinori Saitou

Kyoto University, Japan

Mitinori Saitou received his M.D. and Ph.D. (under Shoichiro Tsukita) from the Kyoto University, performed his postdoctoral work at the Gurdon Institute (with Azim Surani). He was then team leader at the RIKEN CDB. Mitinori Saitou is now Professor at the Kyoto University Graduate School of Medicine and Director of the JST ERATO program. His work focuses on the mechanism and reconstitution in vitro of germ cell development in mice, monkeys, and humans.

Anne Grapin-Botton

DanStem, University of Copenhagen, Denmark

Anne Grapin-Botton is a professor at the Danish Stem Cell Center at University of Copenhagen. She has a background in developmental biology and initially studied nervous system development in Paris with Nicole Le Douarin. Her interests expanded to endoderm and pancreas development as a post-doctoral fellow with Doug Melton at Harvard University. Her laboratory is currently focusing on pancreas development with the overall goal of understanding the dynamics of decision processes of individual progenitors and their organization in space. This has enabled her team to develop three-dimensional culture systems from progenitors derived from embryos or pluripotent stem cells in mouse and human. This work is used to better understand and treat diabetes and other pancreatic affections.

Patrick P.L Tam

Children's Medical Research Institute, NSW, Australia

Anne McLaren Memorial Lecture

Patrick Tam is Head of Embryology Unit at the Children's Medical Research Institute and Professor in Sydney Medical School. He undertakes a systems-based investigation of the functional attributes of gene regulatory network in the context of the cellular and molecular mechanisms that underpin the organization of the basic body plan of the early embryo. The findings provide an in-depth knowledge of lineage differentiation during early embryogenesis, which laid the foundation for directing the first steps of differentiation of stem cells into clinically useful cell types. Patrick Tam is the President’s Medalist of the ANZSDB and Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science, Australian Academy of Health and Medical Sciences, Royal Society of Biology and Royal Society of London.
