On January 31, 2013, the Center for Cell Engineering at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center hosted its sixth annual retreat. In a symposium focusing on regulation of hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) proliferation and HSC expansion, invited investigators presented recent advances in the regulation of HSC expansion in culture and in vivo in cord blood transplant recipients.
