Past Events – Cellular Dynamics Partnering Forum

Cellular Dynamics Partnering Forum at the University of Wisconsin – Madison

Cellular Dynamics International, in cooperation with BioForward Wisconsin and the University of Wisconsin – Madison Office of Corporate Relations, hosted a forum highlighting how CDI products and services are enabling research programs in a broad range of areas including regenerative medicine, disease modeling and research, and drug and therapeutics development. Researchers from the University of Wisconsin and The Medical College of Wisconsin presented how iPSC technology and CDI’s human tissue cell types are helping to accelerate research.

In addition, companies had the opportunity to have an one on one meeting with CDI to discuss how they could leverage iPSC technology and partnering opportunities.
