Fifth International Meeting of Gene and Cell Therapies for Arthritis and Related Diseases
Tuesday, April 29, 2008 -
Thursday, May 1, 2008
Location: Bell Harbor Conference Center, Seattle, WA
Description: The goals of this meeting were to share advances in cellular biology that offer the opportunity to harness regulatory immune cells to combat autoimmune disease, to harness the use of multipotent progenitor cells to augment tissue regeneration and repair, and to accelerate the development of molecular and cellular therapies for rheumatologic and orthopaedic disorders. The GTARD conference series was initiated 9 years ago as a dedicated forum for investigators performing research in these areas to review and discuss scientific progress and to share ideas and technologies. Proceedings from the first three meetings have been published and proceedings from the 2006 meeting are currently in revision. The proceedings from this meeting will be similarly published.
