On behalf of the joint organizing committee among Academia Sinica, Formosa Association Regenerative Medicine (FARM), Taiwan Research-based Biopharmaceutical Manufacturers Association(TRPMA), Taiwan Association of Cell Therapy(TACT), Taiwanese Society of Developmental Biology (TSDB), and Taiwan Society for Stem Cell Research (TSSCR), it is our great pleasure and honor to welcome you to come to Academia Sinica to attend “2017 International Conference of Developmental Biology, Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine - from Basic Research to Applications”, to be held on 15th to 16th of September, 2017, at Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan.

In order to promote development of regenerative medicine through facilitating connections among local and international societies, assisting our government to establish regenerative medicine related regulations and promoting the collaboration among academics, clinics, industry and government institutions, Genomics Research Center of Academia Sinica has joint efforts from FARM, TRPMA, TACT, TSDB, and TSSCR to hold this international conference. The aims to provide a platform for ideas exchange and collaborations for clinician and biologists to stimulate scientific discussions and collaborations. We anticipate the attendance of top scientists from UK, USA, Europe, Japan, Korea, Taiwan and Countries of Asia-Pacific regions. Your presence will add significant value to the conference and once again, we extend our warmest welcome, and wish you a very productive and enjoyable experience at the“ 2017 International Conference of Developmental Biology, Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine - from Basic Research to Applications”

Genomics Research Center, Academia Sinica

Welcome to the 2017 International Conference of Developmental Biology, Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine - from Basic Research to Applications held by Academia Sinica, Formosa Association Regenerative Medicine (FARM), Taiwan Association for Cell Therapy (TACT), Taiwan Research-based Biopharmaceutical Manufacturers As sociation (TRPMA), Taiwanese Society of Developmental Biology (TSDB), and Taiwan Society for Stem Cell Research (TSSCR), in Academia Sinica, Nankang, Taipei, Taiwan from September 15th to September 16th, 2017. In the past year, Formosa Association of Regenerative Medicine and other four associations in Taiwan have worked together to hold an international conference that includes relevant research topics on stem cell, developmental biology, regenerative medicine, tissue engineering and cellular therapy. The efforts of the current organizing committees and scientific committees have successfully established 2017 International Conference of Developmental Biology, Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine - from Basic Research to Applications as the premier conference for the leading community of these research fields. The objective of this international conference is to provide an open discussion for researchers, either from academia, healthcare or industry, to share their experiences and achievements. The topics of 2017 International Conference of Developmental Biology, Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine - from Basic Research to Applications include several sub-themes across basic, translational and clinical studies of biomaterials, nanotechnology, stem cells, cell therapy, tissue engineering and 3D bioprinting to provide a comprehensive coverage of diverse topics on current regenerative medicine. It will be a great honor for us to welcome you to the 2017 International Conference of Developmental Biology, Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine - from Basic Research to Applications. We would like to appreciate the efforts of organizing committee and scientific committee, and advisory board for their advices and supports to make possible organization of this international conference. Finally, we thank the authors who submit high quality abstracts and reviewers who participate in reviewing the abstracts. We sincerely invite you to enjoy the international conference and have a great time in Taipei, Taiwan.

President

Formosa Association of Regenerative Medicine

Various stem cell basic studies and their potential medical applications play a central role in this meeting. This year TSSCR invited outstanding researchers cover many different stem cell fields. The discussion about germ cell specification and reprograming will be led by Prof. Azim Surani’s keynote speech and further discussed in Prof. Shau-Ping Lin’s afternoon talk. Advances related to the maintenance of embryonic stem cell pluripotency will be brought by Prof. Ludovic Vallier and Dr. Wannhsin Chen. Dr. Hung-Chih Kuo will bring insights on the iPSC in vitro neuronal differentiation and Prof Ing-Ming Chiu will talk about neural stem cell differentiation and its stemness sustaintion. Prof. Oscar Lee and Prof. Betty Yen are mesenchymal stem cell experts, they will talk about the latest attempts to test its potential for clinical applications. Prof. Yu-Hua Tseng from Harvard studies adipose tissue differentiation and its role in obesity, insulin resistance, and diabetes. Dr. Kuo-I Lin focuses on haematopoietic lineages and their immunotherapeutic applications. Furthermore the stem cell concept used to explain the epigenetic heterogeneity of cancer cells affected by their in vivo microenvironment will be presented by Prof. Yen-Hua Huang.

On behalf of Taiwanese Society of Developmental Biology (TSDB), it is my great pleasure to welcome you to the 2017 International Conference of Developmental Biology, Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine (DBSRM 2017). TSDB is a vigorous scientific society aims to advance research progressions of Developmental Biology in all organisms at all levels in Taiwan. Our goal is to provide a platform for ideas exchange and collaborations

for developmental biologists to achieve international recognition, promote research focuses, stimulate scientific discussions and collaborations, organize symposiums and enhance public understanding in developmental biology. The DBSRM 2017 fits nicely to our missions. With the team efforts from five societies and association, I hope you all enjoy the incoming conference and have a pleasure stay in Taipei, Taiwan.
