Covered in the webinar:
What is a pluripotent stem cell?
What are the implications of the FDA's recent approval of Geron clinical trials?
What is parthenogenesis and how does this process solve certain ethical and immune rejection issues that have long shadowed stem cell research?
How close are we to treating diseases with stem cells?
The company is hosting this event due to renewed interest in the sector given the FDA's recent approval of human trials of embryonic stem cells and President Obama's commitment to lifting federal research bans.

ABOUT INTERNATIONAL STEM CELL CORPORATION (ISCO.OB):
International Stem Cell Corporation is a California biotechnology company focused on developing therapeutic and research products. ISCO's technology, Parthenogenesis, results in the creation of pluripotent human stem cell lines from unfertilized human eggs. ISCO scientists have created the first Parthenogenetic homozygous stem cell line (phSC-Hhom-4) that can be a source of therapeutic cells that will minimize immune rejection after transplantation into hundreds of millions of individuals of differing sexes, ages and racial groups. These advancements offer the potential to create the first true "Stem Cell Bank" and address ethical issues by eliminating the need to use or destroy fertilized embryos. ISCO also produces and markets specialized cells and growth media worldwide for therapeutic research through its subsidiary Lifeline Cell Technology.
