Rewley House
Department for Continuing Education, 1 Wellington Square, Oxford OX1 2JA

This short course is being run by the Oxford Stem Cell Institute, an Oxford Martin School Institute and the Department for Continuing Education, University of Oxford

Summary: This course is intended to dispel the myths behind stem cell biology and introduce delegates to the science behind the headlines, the pitfalls as well as the promises. The course will begin by introducing key concepts in the field which will form the basis for exploring the properties of selected populations of adult and embryonic stem cells.

Later sessions will be devoted to applied topics that are essential to the therapeutic application of stem cell biology before focussing on ethical and regulatory issues and surveying the landscape for patenting and marketing of stem cell therapies.

The taught component of the course will draw on the varied expertise available within the University of Oxford, with contributions from outside experts, where appropriate.

Course Leader: Dr Paul Fairchild, Co-Director, Oxford Stem Cell Institute
