In addition, Dr. West will discuss recently-published positive results in preclinical studies with the company's retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells, and an update on ACTCellerate. As previously announced by the company, ACTCellerate is a technology platform for isolating novel purified and scalable cell types from human embryonic stem cells. New results relating to novel propagating human heart progenitor and cranial neural crest cell lines isolated using the ACTCellerate technology will be presented.
