Abstract

New advances in cell reprogramming, stem cell biology and 'omics approaches are significantly increasing our knowledge and understanding of stem cell function, and paving the way to new and exciting translational strategies. In this talk, I will summarize the application of these tools to the fields of heart regeneration, cardiac development and cancer stemness.
