Developing Pluripotent Stem Cell-Based Therapies for the Treatment of Age-Related Diseases

Time: 4:30 pm
day: Day One


  • Examining how pluripotent stem cells (PSCs) are a key starting material for the development of off-the-shelf cell-based therapies to help treat patients with high unmet medical needs
  • Outlining the key challenges in the value chain of PSC-based therapies and discussing strategies to overcome these challenges
  • Analyzing how overcoming immunogenicity will help improve and expand the clinical application of allogeneic PSC-based therapies
  • Discussing how the marriage of gene editing technologies with PSC technology is helping to create the next generation of engineered cell therapies that go above and beyond what naturally occurring cells of a patient’s body can do
