All World Stem Cell Summit attendees receive a free copy of the World Stem Cell Report.

The Genetics Policy Institute (GPI) and Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers have announced that the 2013 World Stem Cell Report will be published as a special supplement to the peer-reviewed journal Stem Cells and Development. Dr. Graham Parker and Bernard Siegel will serve as Co-Editors-in-Chief, joined by Rosario Isasi (McGill University) as Managing Editor

The Report will be made available to all subscribers of Stem Cells and Development and complimentary to attendees of the World Stem Cell Summit. The Summit program delivers on the "big picture" featuring 170+ prominent scientists, business leaders, regulators, policy-makers, advocates, economic development officers, experts in law and ethics, and visionary gurus who will discuss the latest scientific discoveries, business models, legal and regulatory solutions, and best practices. The Summit is expected to attract attendees from more than 40 nations.
