SAVE THE DATE: Frontiers in Stem Cell & Organoid Medicine Symposium 2022

The next “Frontiers in Stem Cell & Organoid Medicine Symposium” will take place on March 24-25, 2022 at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. The symposium is co-sponsored by The Center for Stem Cell & Organoid Medicine (CuSTOM) and RIKEN Center for Biosystems Dynamics Research (BDR).

Co-sponsored by CuSTOM and RIKEN BDR, as well as a number of leading biotechnology companies, this international symposium will focus on recent breakthroughs and accelerating clinical translation, and will feature top academic researchers, industry scientists, as well as junior investigators who are emerging leaders in the field.

The symposium will be relatively small (~150 participants) with a range of focused topics from basic research to clinical and commercial translation of iPS cell and organoid technology. Workshop sessions will focus on major hurdles and opportunities in Organoid Medicine.

For in-person participation, please note: Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center is committed to the health and safety of our presenters, attendees, and staff, and will follow all COVID-19 protocols and public health recommendations. Proof of vaccination will be required to attend. Details regarding the collection of verification will be provided closer to the event date.
