ISSCR Poster Awards

Each year at the annual meeting, the ISSCR presents awards to numerous Associate Members eligible for Poster Awards. Winners receive a $250 stipend, a one-year subscription to Cell Stem Cell and Current Protocols in Stem Cell Research, and complimentary registration to ISSCR's annual meeting the following year.  The ISSCR congratulates the 2012 ISSCR Poster Award winners who were selected from 957 eligible abstracts on display in Yokohama, Japan at the ISSCR 10th Annual Meeting:
