The stem cell niche finds its true north

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

The third ‘Stem Cell Niche’ meeting, supported by The Novo Nordisk Foundation, was held this year on May 22-26 and brought together 185 selected participants from 24 different countries to Hillerød, Denmark. Diverse aspects of embryonic and adult stem cell biology were discussed, including their respective niches in ageing, disease and regeneration. Many presentations focused on emerging technologies, including single-cell analysis, in vitro organogenesis and direct reprogramming. Here, we summarize the data presented at this exciting and highly enjoyable meeting, where speakers as well as kitchen chefs were applauded at every session.
