The North American Veterinary Regenerative Medicine Association will be holding a conference on stem cell therapy and regenerative medicine on June 2-5 in Lexington, Ky.
About 400 people are expected to attend, including veterinarians, research scientists and medical professionals.
The conference will feature scientific presentations and discussion sessions that blend research and practical applications, addressing all aspects of stem cell therapy and regenerative medicine in horses and small animals, according to the University of California, Davis School of Veterinary Medicine.
The association was formed by the vet school, among others, in 2010 as a way to promote research and sharing of new findings related to regenerative medicine and stem cell therapy in animals.
The vet school is joining with horse clinics in Kentucky and California to coordinate the conference.
A special half-day forum is planned for horse owners, trainers and equine professionals on June 4.
