ROCHESTER — The Genetics Policy Institute, a leading promoter and defender of stem cell research across the U.S. and abroad, has announced its support as a major sponsor of the Second Midwest Conference on Stem Cell Biology and Therapy at Oakland University.

Set for Oct. 5-7, the conference will welcome dozens of experts from around the world to discuss the latest advances in the discipline. In addition to professionals across the health care spectrum, the event is also open to interested members of the public.

“Exploring and expanding the leading edge of science and technology research are among the most important roles of a world-class university. With this in mind, OU is proud to host this very timely, relevant and influential event,” said Oakland University President Gary Russi. “Of course, another critical role of the nation’s universities is to stimulate dialogue on the most challenging issues of our time. Hosting an open and meaningful discussion of the ethical considerations surrounding stem cell research will be a key component to the broader success of this conference.”
