ISEH 2020 Annual Meeting
Satellite Symposium

“Human pluripotent stem cell-derived hematopoiesis”:
From development to stem cell therapies

19 August 2020
New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge Brooklyn, New York, NY

Organizers: George Q. Daley, Eirini Papapetrou, Sergei Doulatov

Goals of the symposium

This symposium aims to bring together researchers working in the fields of blood development, hPSC modeling of blood diseases, and generation of hPSC-derived blood products for cell replacement therapies and immuno-therapies. Topics will include recent advances in characterizing the ontogeny of the hematopoietic system, in generating disease models of non-malignant and malignant blood diseases and in developing cell and gene therapies using hPSC-derived cells. Our goal is to build, expand and foster a community of researchers who share common interests in better methods to generate blood cells from pluripotent stem cell sources with an emphasis on human hematopoiesis from hPSCs. We are planning one full day of speaker sessions, educational session, and lively discussion and envision turning this into an annual event.

The satellite symposium will take place 1 day before the general ISEH meeting and cover these topics:

hPSC-derived hematopoiesis

Basic studies of hPSC-derived hematopoiesis and hematopoietic stem cells.

iPSC models of blood diseases

Latest research to use iPSCs to model benign and malignant blood disorders.

hPSC-derived blood cells for therapy

Generation of clinically valuable blood cell types for cell therapy from hPSCs.

Educational session

Discussion of methods and protocols for hPSC culture and differentiation
