It wasn’t long ago when we first heard about the promise of stem cells. They were the wave of the future.

With stem cells we’d be able to cure disease, repair organs and test new drugs for effectiveness before introducing them into humans. Has the promise of stem cells been overstated? No. The promise has yet to be realized, but we are on the path to reap the benefits of breakthrough research to improve human health.

Join us for a candid discussion on future stem cell therapies with Evan Snyder, M.D. Ph.D., Director of the Center for Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine at Sanford Children's Health Research Center at Sanford Burnham Prebys and former chairman of the FDA’s Cellular, Tissue and Gene Therapy Advisory committee. Hear firsthand how stem cells are on the forefront of treatments and cures for diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, ALS, autoimmune diseases, heart disease, osteoarthritis and so many other health conditions that negatively affect our lives.

Join us for a vibrant discussion and learn how stem cell research may impact the future of your health.

A Q&A session will follow the presentation and will give you an opportunity to personally connect with Dr. Snyder and have your questions answered.
