News: Several gene therapies are or will soon be in late-stage human trials
Though many gene therapies have been tested in patients around the world in hopes of curing hereditary diseases, few governments have approved their sale, and none has been approved in the United States. That could change in coming years as several therapies enter advanced trials. Experts say it is likely to be a few years before a treatment is approved in the U.S. With its European approval in hand, UniQure may have good chance of also getting the first U.S. approval, but the company says it has not yet submitted an application to the FDA.

Conference: Stem Cell Congress 2013
Oxford Global Conferences are proud to present our Stem Cell Congress, to be held on the 4th & 5th November 2013 at the Copthorne Tara Hotel London Kensington. Experts predict that the stem cell industry will to be worth over $5 billion by 2014, reflecting the enormous potential of stem cell technologies in the pharmaceutical industry. Over this two day conference our esteemed experts will offer invaluable insights into the latest stem cell applications in translational research as well as exploring advances in bioprocessing and engineering technologies.

On day one our experts will explore the latest applications of stem cells in discovery and early development. Our renowned speakers will discuss methods of improving drug screening efficiency with stem cell models. Presentations will include the use of pluripotent stem cells in disease modelling, the application of iPSCs in translational research as well as stem cell based systems for gene expression profiling.
Day two will focus on overcoming bioprocessing and manufacturing challenges presented by stem cells and iPS cells. Our industry leaders will discuss promising strategies to meet cell manufacturing quality and quantity requirements. Delegates will also hear about the latest advances in reprogramming techniques and methods to ensure controlled stem cell growth.

Dates: November 4-5, 2013
Venue: Copthorne Tara Hotel London Kensington
