Overview

Embryonic stem cells, like cells of the very early mammalian embryo, have the remarkable ability to give rise to the myriad of different cell types present in an adult animal, a trait known as pluripotency. However embryonic stem cells can also be maintained in this pluripotent state indefinitely. It is these two features that are the foundations of the idea of personalised medicine. During the course of this two day symposium we will be discussing this amazing feature of pluripotency. How does it arise during normal mammalian embryogenesis? How is it maintained in embryonic cells, and how is it regained when the gametes are formed? We will also discuss how cells ‘decide’ just which developmental path to take once they leave this state of pluripotency. The aim of this symposium is to bring together established leaders in this field as well as emerging talents to provide an overarching view of pluripotency from a developmental context: how it is established, and how it can be controlled.
