Networking Opportunities

ISSCR International Symposium
6-8 November 2019  |  Toronto, Canada


One of the best parts of an ISSCR International Symposium is networking with colleagues at all levels in an intimate and accessible way. You'll have numerous opportunities to further your science and career including poster presentations, social receptions, and our unique online-to-onsite job search platform, Job Match.

Poster Presentations

This ISSCR International Symposium will feature 100 posters with the latest stem cell science across a range of topics. Poster presentations will take place in one evening session on Thursday, 7 November, 16:00-18:30.

Have research to present? Submit your abstract before 28 August , 2019. 



Receptions are a great opportunity to make new discoveries and new connections. Plan to greet your fellow attendees at the Welcome Reception on Wednesday, and see the latest science at the poster reception on Thursday. Both events are at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
