The International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) together with the Center for iPS Cell Research and Application (CiRA) presented the International Symposium Pluripotency from basic science to therapeutic application 22-24 March, 2016. The International Symposia series expands the global reach of ISSCR and CiRA educational programming and invites attendees from around the world.

Pluripotency from basic science to therapeutic application celebrated 10 years of iPS technology with the top scientists in pluripotent stem cell biology, cell differentiation and direct reprogramming, and therapeutic applications. from around the world. Attendees explored the latest directions of stem cell research, including new techniques in genome editing, that are moving the field to new understandings of disease and toward therapeutic applications.
