Welcome!

The International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) in partnership with the European Society of Gene & Cell Therapy (ESGCT) and in collaboration with the Associazione di Biologia Cellulare e del Differenziamento (ABCD) presents Changing the Face of Modern Medicine: Stem Cells & Gene Therapy. This International Symposium brings an exceptional scientific program to the unforgettable city of Florence, Italy. 

Changing the Face of Modern Medicine: Stem Cells & Gene Therapy will highlight the latest directions of stem cell research, gene and cell therapies, that are advancing us towards new understandings of disease and therapeutic applications. Hear from leaders pushing the boundaries of stem cell science towards clinical applications and disease therapies.

What to Expect

ISSCR and ESGCT are proud to present an exceptional scientific program in an engaging, intimate atmosphere. The meeting will begin with a keynote lecture on Tuesday, 18 October and conclude on the evening of Friday, 21 October. There will be plenty of opportunities for interactions among all levels of attendees. Lecture sessions will be supplemented with:

Opportunities for abstract-selected talks, poster teasers presentations

Social and networking events
Who should attend?

Academic, industry and clinical researchers interested in stem cell biology and its therapeutic applications are encouraged to attend and share their research. Attendees will hear from leaders in the field and benefit from the convivial atmosphere and open exchange of ideas found at this symposium.

What Sets International Symposia Apart?

International Symposia are where the world's leading minds are building the future of stem cell science. They are focused meetings that bring together approximately 400 attendees,100 posters and exhibitors with innovative technologies. The goal is to expand ISSCR's educational reach, making it more accessible for stem cell scientists from around the world.
