Topic: Hematopoietic specification from pluripotent cell lines vs. reprogramming of somatic cells
Presenters: George Q. Daley, Boston Children's Hospital and Derrick Rossi, Boston Children's Hospital
Moderator: Kateri Moore, Ichan School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
1. Understand the deficiency of multi-potential hematopoietic progenitors from in vitro differentiated human pluripotent stem cells.
2. Understand how combinations of transcription factors can induce multi-potency from otherwise myeloid-restricted blood cells.
