Leading faculty members from the Nova Southeastern University (NSU) College of Allopathic Medicine (M.D. College) are scheduled to present their research related to advancing new approaches to cancer immunotherapy and regenerative medicine at the 2018 World Stem Cell Summit (WSCS).

“We have built a team that is passionately focused on the potential of cell-based therapies to prevent, treat and cure life-threatening and debilitating diseases such as cardiac disease, cancer and macular degeneration,” said Richard Jove, Ph.D., director, NSU Cell Therapy Institute; chair and professor, Department of Biomedical Sciences, NSU M.D. College; and WSCS co-chair. “We look forward to sharing our innovations alongside our international collaborators and learning from colleagues in this rapidly evolving field of research.”

The WSCS is being held on January 22-26 at the Hyatt Regency in Miami. It is the largest interdisciplinary stem cell meeting in the world, featuring more than 250 prominent scientists, business leaders, investors, philanthropists, regulators, policy-makers, economic development officers, patient advocates and experts in law and ethics, presenting the latest scientific discoveries, commercial and innovation opportunities, legal and regulatory solutions, and best practices. The event is expected to attract more than 1,200 attendees from 40 nations.

Representatives from NSU will also be conducting meetings with academic and corporate partners at the WSCS, including a booth on the exhibit floor.
