World Stem Cell Summit — Dec 3-5, 2014

The World Stem Cell Summit is taking place from December 3-5 2014 in San Antonio, Texas. An absolutely unbelievable lineup of over 200 speakers from across the world is presenting there. Among the more renowned personalities speaking at the Summit include Anthony Atala, George Church and Aubrey de Grey. I always get excited about such conferences, and even attended the Singularity Summit in 2008 despite not being involved in medicine or technology in any significant way whatsoever.

Although issues related to serious medical problems justifiably garner the most attention at the Summit, hair loss and dermatology related problems also get some coverage. Replicel’s Lee Buckler is listed as a presenter. Moreover, famous skin problems and related appendage (hair follicles, sweat glands, etc…) researcher Elaine Fuchs gave a 1-hour lecture at an off-site event yesterday.

Perhaps a few other little known presenters may also offer insights into stem cells and dermatological problems such as hair loss?
