On March 13, 2014, Universidad Anáhuac in Mexico City hosted a symposium entitled “Simposio sobre el uso clínico de células troncales adultas en humanos” translated as, “Symposium on the Clinical Use of Adult Stem Cells in Humans.” The Symposium brought faculty and students together with government leaders and policymakers to discuss important issues of stem cell regulation and policy in Mexico. The Symposium took place as part of the university’s larger 50th anniversary celebration. SFLF Trustee Dr. Max Gomez, was a featured speaker at the symposium, addressing an audience of medical students on the topic of cellular therapies for cardiovascular disease. The symposium was organized, in part, by Humberto Mestre Payne, a member of our Student Ambassador program, and the author of the April issue of Life Lines.
