2nd Annual Center for Definitive and Curative Medicine (CDCM) Symposium

The newly-launched CDCM is a joint initiative of the Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford Health Care and Stanford Children’s Health. The Center provides the organizational and physical infrastructure to support investigator-initiated clinical translational studies on stem cell and gene therapy from initial discovery through completion of clinical proof-of-concept studies. This year's symposium is sponsored by Child Health Research Institute (CHRI) and Lucile Packard Children's Hospital (LPCH). The CDCM is co-directed by Drs. Maria Grazia RoncaroloAnthony Oro, and Matthew Porteus.
