Stem Cells & the Immune System: At the Crossroads of Regeneration
Nov 3 @ 11:00 am – 5:00 pm

REGISTERSPEAKERS | SPONSORS | COVID INFO

The IRM is excited to announce that we are partnering with the Institute for Immunology (IFI) for our fall 2021 symposium, Stem Cells & the Immune System: At the Crossroads of Regeneration. This hybrid in-person/virtual event will feature external speakers and Penn scientists discussing a rapidly emerging question: how does the immune system influence regeneration throughout the body?

Recent studies have pointed to a role for the cells of the immune system in modulating stem cell activity in a number of different tissues: T cells infiltrating neurogenic niches; inflammation mediating alveolar regeneration; macrophages providing transient muscle stem cell niches and more. Our fall symposium will explore these and related topics, focusing on the impact on stem cell biology.

Penn/CHOP faculty, postdocs, students, and staff are invited to join us in person in the Smilow Rubenstein Auditorium and Commons.
