Stem cells from adipose tissue

Published on March 5, 2014   40 min
Hello, this is Adam Katz. And the title of my presentation is "Stem Cells from Adipose Tissue." I am an associate professor in the division of plastic surgery at the University of Florida.
As part of full disclosure, I would like to mention that I am a named inventor on issued and or pending patents related to the adipose field, including adipose-derived cells and matrix. And I have in the past received royalties related to this IP. I also serve on the board of directors or have been a founder on at least two companies that operate in this field.
As a brief overview for my presentation, I will be giving a brief background on the adipose-derived cell, as well as some of the past and current science related to these cells. We'll also discuss briefly some of the regulatory issues surrounding the translation of adipose-derived cells and then the translation and commercialization of these cells specifically.
