Veterinarians Invited To Horse Stem Cell Conference In California

Veterinarians Invited to Horse Stem Cell Conference in California

Researchers and veterinary practitioners from throughout the United States and abroad are invited to the inaugural North American Veterinary Regenerative Medicine Conference, a two-day event to include scientific presentations, demonstrations and discussion sessions. The meeting is coordinated by the UC Davis Center for Equine Health and the Alamo Pintado Equine Medical Center in California’s Central Coast.

The groundbreaking conference on the use of stem cell therapy and regenerative medicine to treat horses and other animals will feature new research developments and techniques for harvesting, expanding and preserving stem cells, according to the university. In addition, the 200 expected participants will learn about clinical applications and methods for using stem cells in orthopedics, including treating tendon and ligament injuries.

One roundtable session plans to feature a discussion on the use of regenerative medicine in equine veterinary practices. Live demonstrations at the equine medical center are set to highlight stem cell collection techniques from bone marrow and fat, and laboratory processing of bone marrow samples, organizers said.

The UC Davis Center for Equine Health is coordinating a regenerative medicine research study, now in its fourth year. The study is led by a team of 20 university researchers, including veterinary scientists and members of the UC Davis Department of Biomedical Engineering. Scientists are working to find ways for collecting, processing, storing and administering stem cells to repair bone, tendon and ligament injuries in horses.

The conference takes place March 5-6 at the Santa Ynez Valley Marriott in Buellton, Calif., a 30-minute drive north of Santa Barbara. Click here for online registration.
