UKNSCN stem cell roadshow – 29th March at Kings Manor, York




Dear Colleagues,

I am writing to highlight the UKNSCN stem cell roadshow

‘Stem Cells and Stem Cell Tourism, an Evening Discussion’ taking place at the Kings Manor, York on the 29th March from 6.15-9pm, registration from 5.45pm.

This is a public engagement event which will feature the first UK screening of the award winning 50 minute film ‘Indestructible’. This fascinating and moving film documents the declining health of a young American motor neurone disease sufferer and includes his trip to China for a stem cell treatment. This part of the film is both shocking and hugely revealing. The film charts his efforts to alleviate his worsening symptoms and his numerous visits to other MND sufferers across the world. It includes interviews with recognised western clinicians, as well as many poignant moments with members of Ben’s own close family. There is something in this film for everyone: the stem cell biologist, clinician, regulator, government, ethicist, theologian, patients, public etc.

Following the film and a refreshments break, there will be an open discussion session with a panel of local experts. This event is open to all and will be a great opportunity to take part in public engagement and stem cell science debate, the evening is free to attend but please register by reply to this email or on 01793 442851, further are avaliable at http://www.uknscn.org/public_events/index.html.

Please find the programme attached, and please feel free to invite friends and colleagues along who would be interested in finding out more about stem cell treatments, the ethics surrounding stem cells and stem cell tourism. Please could I also encourage you to distribute the attached programme to help make this UKNSCN stem cell roadshow in York a success!

I look forward to seeing some of you at the roadshow next week.

Kind regards,
