SPRINGFIELD, Mass., May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Exhibiting their ongoing commitment to research initiatives in biotechnology, Blackstone Medical, Inc. will be co-sponsoring the first annual Conference on Cellular Engineering at UMass Amherst on May 10, 2006. The objective of this one-day event is to encourage the exchange of thoughts and ideas around the science and applications of cellular engineering and to foster collaborative relationships between the academic and research realm and external partners.

Leading cellular engineering researchers will be presenting on what analysts predict are widespread implications for science and society in the next five to ten years: in particular, human therapeutics, bioremediation, biomanufacturing, homeland security and energy production. Blackstone's involvement in this academic forum "is absolutely vital to continuing important research. These programs represent the next generation of scientists and researchers." said Blackstone Medical, Inc. Chairman, William Lyons, adding, "A lot is going to change in the next few years and we're proud to be a sponsor of the critical research that's happening today."

ICE is a multidisciplinary, interdepartmental research initiative focused on coordinating and expanding cellular engineering educational and scholarly activities on campus and enabling translational research through strategic industry partnerships.
