Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation

The Year 2000 Forum of the William Guy Forbeck Research Foundation focused on the topic of allogeneic stem cell transplantation.  Participants included experts in stem cell biology, scientists interested in experimental models of transplantation and tumor immunology, clinical researchers, and population scientists.  The general mood of the meeting was one of considerable excitement and optimism.  This mood was created by the general agreement that for perhaps the first time we now have the necessary knowledge and most of the tools to harness the enormous power of the human immune system in the fight against cancer.
