GPI is a nonprofit organization recognized as a leading promoter and defender of stem cell research and other cutting-edge medical research targeting cures. Since GPI's inception in 2003, its mission has been to establish a positive policy, regulatory and societal framework to enable research to flourish, under the highest ethical and medical standards. We seek to accelerate the discovery and development of lifesaving cures and therapies to alleviate human suffering due to chronic and terminal afflictions.
The World Stem Cell Summit, produced by the Genetics Policy Institute (GPI), is the largest interdisciplinary, networking meeting of stem cell science and regenerative medicine stakeholders, uniting the diverse community. With the overarching purpose of fostering biomedical research, funding and investments targeting cures, the Summit is the single conference charting the future of this burgeoning field.
The program provides the research, industry, economic and societal context for understanding how all of the pieces of the stem cell science and regenerative medicine puzzle fit together. Supported by 200 organizing partners, sponsors, exhibitors, endorsing organizations and media partners, the Summit is a three-day showcase of innovation, insight and inspiration.
Welcome to the future of medicine! The first annual RegMed Capital Conference is an exciting new addition to the 10th annual World Stem Cell Summit. The conference brings the investment community together with the regenerative medicine industry in order to foster new opportunities for collaboration and investment in this rapidly advancing field. Fully integrated into the World Stem Cell Summit platform, the RegMed Capital Conference will provide unparalleled networking opportunities with global leaders from throughout the regenerative medicine community. Attendees will come away with a complete 360-degree view of this revolutionary new field of medicine.
The Stem Cell Action Coalition serves as an engine uniting the pro-cures community. We demand that both our elected and appointed officials in all branches and levels of government, federal and state, establish stem cell & regenerative medicine research as a national public health priority. So focused, these officials need to enact and uphold laws that protect funding for scientifically meritorious and ethically responsible research that will foster the emergence of cures sooner, rather than later.
It is up to the Stem Cell Action Coalition to educate and increase the public awareness that this research is not that of science fiction but rather of science fact.
The Genetics Policy Institute (GPI) and Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers partnered to produce the World Stem Cell Report as a special supplement to the peer-reviewed journal Stem Cells and Development. Dr. Graham Parker and Bernard Siegel are the Co-Editors-in-Chief, joined by Rosario Isasi (McGill University) as Managing Editor
The Report will be made available to all online subscribers of Stem Cells and Development and complimentary to attendees of the World Stem Cell Summit. The Summit program delivers on the "big picture" featuring 200+ prominent scientists, business leaders, regulators, policy-makers, advocates, economic development officers, experts in law and ethics, and visionary gurus who will discuss the latest scientific discoveries, business models, legal and regulatory solutions, and best practices. The Summit is expected to attract attendees from more than 40+ nations.
Genetics Policy Institute will honor the stem cell community's top innovators, leaders, and champions at the Stem Cell Action Awards Dinner at the annual 2014 World Stem Cell Summit. Since 2005, the awards have recognized dedicated individuals and organizations that have made distinguished contributions to the cause of stem cell research, including stem cell advocates, elected officials, philanthropists and scientists.
The 2014 Stem Cell Action Award Honorees include Henry Cisneros (Leadership), Japanese Society for Regenerative Medicine (International Leadership), Texans for Stem Cell Research (Education), Mostyn Foundation (Advocacy Awards) and Huntington's Disease (HD) Community (Inspiration).
