NEW YORK – The Society for Biological Engineering (SBE) of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers and the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) are partnering to host the 4th International Conference on Stem Cell Engineering, which will be held from March 16 to 19, 2014 at the Coronado Island Marriott in Coronado, California.

The meeting, which brings together engineers, biologists, and clinicians who are working on cellular therapies, is designed to accelerate progress in this increasingly important area of research. The goal of this accelerated effort is the generation of cells to advance tissue regeneration and other stem-cell-based therapies.

Keynote speakers include Deepak Srivastava, the Younger family director and senior investigator at the Gladstone Institute of Cardiovascular Disease and director of the Roddenbery Stem Cell Center at Gladstone; Linda Griffith, the School of Engineering Teaching Innovation Professor of Biological Engineering at MIT; Philippe Menasche, professor of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery at the University of Paris Descartes; and Sean Palecek, founder of the Palecek lab at the University of Madison-Wisconsin. The conference, which is being co-chaired by Todd McDevitt of the Georgia Institute of Technology and Ron McKay of the Lieber Institute for Brain Development, will cover strategies in:

- Extracellular Programming & Reprogramming
- Intracellular Programming & Reprogramming
- Imaging
- Stem Cell Tissue Engineering & Morphogenesis
- Regenerative Therapies
- Bioprocessing and Biomanufacturing Strategies
- Microtechnologies & High Throughput Screening
- Computational Stem Cell Biology

Additional presenters include:

- Taby Ahsan, Tulane University
- Ihor Lemischka, Mt. Sinai Medical Center
- David Scadden, Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard University
- David Schaffer, University of California, Berkeley
- Jim Wells, University of Cincinnati
- Steven George, UC Irvine
- Peter Zandstra, University of Toronto
