Inspiration From the ISSCR 2019 Annual Meeting: Making Meaningful Impacts in 2019 & 2020
As stem cell researchers, we are in a unique position to make real and meaningful impacts in the world. During my time as ISSCR President my goal, beyond supporting ISSCR’s role as the main convener of stem cell science, is to strengthen the society’s voice and influence by expanding on our global policy initiatives and helping foster industry-academic partnerships to accelerate the safe and effective clinical translation of stem cell research.

On the cover: Stepwise transduction of iPSC-derived pancreatic progenitor cells by three transcription factors, PDX1, NEUROG3, and MAFA, enabled in vitro generation of glucose- and GLP-1-responsive beta cells. ''Forward reprogrammed'' iPSC-derived islet-like cells were analyzed by immunofluorescent staining for insulin (green) and NKX2.2 (red) expression.
