More than 200 of the world’s leading experts on adult stem cell research and regenerative medicine are gathered in Cleveland this week. They’re here for MSC 2015, a biennial conference that highlights research on the topic.

The cells are being tested in hundreds of clinical trials in the U.S. and abroad as a way to treat a variety of health conditions such as multiple sclerosis, graft versus host disease in organ donation, cirrhosis, osteoarthritis, emphysema and stroke.
