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
and then the translation and
commercialization of these cells
