Symposium on Stem Cell Research and Prospects
On November 28th, 2005, the US-Polish Trade Council held a prestigious gathering at Stanford University of some of the world’s leading researchers and practitioners in the field of stem cell research. Moderated by Stanford University Associate Dean and Professor, Channing Robertson, the panelists discussed current research, ethics, commercial application and opportunities to collaborate within the biotechnology industry. Polish Senator Jerzy Szymura was on hand to share some insight on the Polish government’s stance on stem cell research and application. The event attracted a large group of professionals from Bay Area commercial, academic and government biotechnology organizations.
The US-Polish Trade Council wishes to thank all who made this event such a success!
