Overview

 

Organised by Professor Sir Ian Wilmut FRS, Dr Ian Chambers and Dr Gareth Sullivan

Recent years have witnessed an unprecedented advance in our ability to alter cell identity. By controlled manipulation of the extracellular and/or intracellular environment we can now direct cells between different embryonic and adult states. World-leading scientists will discuss how this re-shaping of the way we think of using cells may herald new strategies for research and therapy. 

The proceedings of this meeting have now been published in a special issue of Philosophical Transactions B. Audio recordings of the meeting are also available below.
