CME & CNE Credits


The purpose of this conference is to update physicians, scientists, nurses, APRN's, allied health professionals and trainees in the greater Midwest region on:
  1. the past, present and future of adult stem cell therapy;
  2. new diagnosis and treatment guidelines related to cell therapy for various medical conditions; and
  3. management of patients using these new cell transplantation technologies. A review of clinical trials that have contributed to the advancement of this field will be presented.

The participants will learn about advances in therapy with adult stem cells, examine the latest trends in regenerative medicine and gain a greater understanding of adult stem cell biology and their potential for tissue and organ regeneration.

Target Audience

The Midwest Conference on Cell Therapy and Regenerative Medicine is designed for physicians, scientists, advanced practice registered nurses, nurses, allied health professionals, and trainees in the fields of cardiovascular diseases, pulmonology, hematology & oncology, endocrinology, neurology and critical care.


At the completion of this symposium, participants should be able to:

  • Discuss recent and ongoing clinical trials in adult stem cell therapy in various medical specialties.
  • Assess the latest advances in adult stem cell therapy technologies.
  • Identify the utility and effectiveness of various cell types and their potential effects.
  • Describe emerging therapies and their effects on patients’ long-term outcomes.
  • Recognize patients who can potentially benefit from cell therapy.
