Symposium poster

The UCSC Stem Cells & Aging Symposium will address underexplored areas of investigation at the intersection of stem cell biology and aging.

Session topics 

  • Aging and the stem cell niche
  • Insights on aging from the embryo
  • Aging of tissue-specific stem cells
  • Epigenetics and aging

Research talks delivered by invited, internationally recognized stem cell scientists will be interspersed with talks by scholars from the UCSC Training Program for Systems Biology of Stem Cells and registrants selected from abstract submissions. A poster session (posters selected from abstract submissions) will enable more research presentations.

Keynote lecture

Judith Campisi, a world renowned researcher from the Buck Institute for Research on Aging, will speak on the enormous promise of stem cell therapies and the challenges that aging presents to the use of these therapies. Campesi is widely recognized for her work on cellular senescence, and recently her lab has been investigating the effect of this process on adult stem cells. She has received numerous awards, most recently the 2010 Longevity prize from the IPSEN Foundation.

This is the only major meeting on stem cells and aging in the United States this year.
