Fifth international meeting of gene and cell therapies for arthritis and related diseases

goals of this meeting are to share advances in cellular biology that
offer the opportunity to harness regulatory immune cells to combat
autoimmune disease, to harness the use of multipotent progenitor cells
to augment tissue regeneration and repair, and to accelerate the
development of molecular and cellular therapies for rheumatologic and
orthopaedic disorders. The GTARD conference series was initiated 9
years ago as a dedicated forum for investigators performing research in
these areas to review and discuss scientific progress and to share
ideas and technologies. Proceedings from the first three meetings have
been published and proceedings from the 2006 meeting are currently in
revision. The proceedings from this meeting will be similarly
