    2018 ISSCR Year in Review

    Stem cell science and regenerative medicine has made great progress in 2018, with significant clinical trials underway in several research areas, and advances in understanding that are illuminating new research pathways. The role of the ISSCR in supporting the research and its responsible translation to the clinic has never been more important. I want to highlight for you some of ISSCR’s work throughout the year that I believe helps advance science, give voice to our members, and sustain this ever-evolving field.
