The Perinatal Stem Cell Society was founded on the basic principle that stem cells from perinatal tissues contain enormous, untapped potential for use in medicine. For this reason, the society hosts an annual event known as the Perinatal Stem Cell Society Congress. It includes a scientific program with topics covering all aspects of the perinatal stem cell field, with attendees advancing perinatal stem cell research and focused on paths towards treatment.
Without question, perinatal stem cells represent one of the most promising areas of stem cell research. While perinatal stem cells are largely recognized for their therapeutic potential, these cells will also shape the fields of drug discovery and toxicology.
