Our Promise: To Transform Human Health Worldwide Through Stem Cell Research

Stem cell research is at a defining point in its history. Scientists have been working diligently, making daily advances and new discoveries in stem cell science. Now, they are on the cusp of taking their knowledge and translating it into safe and effective treatments for devastating and previously intractable illnesses that affect millions around the globe, including many of our loved ones.

As the world’s leading international cross-disciplinary stem cell research organization, the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) is the main catalyst in promoting global collaboration to speed the translation of basic stem cell research into improvements in human health. Our unwavering commitment to excellence in promoting all aspects of stem cell research is driving us forward into a future of ever expanding impact.

My greatest hope is to see my research turn into new treatments and cures for patients...Triumph in stem cell research will require scientists, labs, and institutes everywhere, working together to bring stem cells to patients. Your support is a huge encouragement for us to continue our important work.Shinya Yamanaka, MD, PhD
