International Conference Cell Technologies at the Edge: Research & Practice (CTERP 2016) has been scheduled to take place at Palace of Grand Duke Vladimir Alexandrovich, St. Petersburg, Russia, April 6-8, 2016.

Recent discoveries in stem cell field, most notably in pluripotent stem cell research, have opened tremendous opportunities for drug development, modeling of disease, and transplantation medicine. The conference will serve as a platform that gives an opportunity for scientists from basic and applied cell biology fields, practical doctors, and biotech companies to meet and share their experience, to discuss future application of stem cells, develop novel approaches of drug screening and stem cell-based practical medicine.
