Stem Cell Revolutions
– vision of the future

See the Australian premiere of the film that documents the history of stem cell research and what is holds for the future. Includes interviews with this year’s Nobel Prize winner Shinya Yamanaka, awarded for his discovery of induced pluripotent stem cells, the religiously, politically and therapeutically pleasing stem cell. Hang around after the movie for a question and answer session with Sydney’s top stem cell researchers. The movie will be shown coinciding with the Nobel Prize award ceremony in Stockholm, Sweden.

Q&A panellists include: Michael Morris (Sydney Uni/NSW Stem Cell Network), Michael O’Connor (Uni NSW/Australasian Society Stem Cell Research), Janet MacPherson (Sydney Uni/Royal Prince Alfred Hospital), Kuldip Sidhu (Uni NSW) and Alexis Bosman (Victor Chang/Stem Cells Australia)
