Adipose‐ derived stromal/stem cells (ASC) have shown tremendous promise as therapies for a variety of human diseases, particularly for patients with severe cases refractory to current medical treatments. ASCs possess the capacity for homing, immunomodulation, promotion of repair, and direct regeneration of damaged tissues. The goals for this session will be to (1.) discuss the basic biology and pre-clinical research on ASCs in multiple disease models, and (2.) to present ongoing clinical research on the use of ASCs to treat human diseases. The speakers for this session represent leading experts in the field of ASCs.
Discuss the clinical applications of ASCs
Discuss the mechanisms by which ASCs combat disease
