NHLBI Celebration of Progenitor Cell Research and Translation, March 28-29, 2023

The NHLBI Celebration of Progenitor Cell Research and Translation Meeting will be held in Bethesda, Maryland (Tuesday, March 28-29, 2023), at the Natcher Building, Main Auditorium, NIH Campus. Investigators from the past Progenitor Cell Biology Consortium (PCBC), Lung Repair and Regeneration Consortium (LRRC), and current Progenitor Cell Translational Consortium  (PCTC) will present recent advances and future visions in the heart, lung, and blood fields.

PCTC “Jump-Start” Awards

PCTC Jump Start Award Program


To provide the PCTC with a mechanism to quickly award small grants to junior faculty (less than 5 years from their appointment to Assistant Professor), Research Associates, Graduate Students, Fellows and Postdocs to support a well-defined specific aim. The aim should involve at least one of the following, with priority given to proposals that incorporate two:

1.     The application of new technology to an existing translational research question

Progenitor Cell Biology Consortium (PCBC) Cell Differentiation Data Available for Access

The Progenitor Cell Biology Consortium (PCBC), is a NHLBI sponsored effort to identify and characterize progenitor cell lineages, to direct the differentiation of stem and progenitor cells to desired cell fates, and to develop new strategies to address the unique challenges presented by the transplantation of these cells.
