Exceptional Science. New Digital Experience.
23-27 June, 2020

Skokie, IL – The International Society for Stem Cell Research has transformed its annual scientific meeting into a virtual experience, bringing the global stem cell community together to share knowledge, collaborate, and network. Registration is now open.

The ISSCR 2020 Virtual Meeting, cosponsored by the Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI), will deliver a comprehensive scientific educational programming that includes plenaries featuring the field’s leading scientists and concurrent sessions covering four key themes: cellular identity, clinical applications, tissue stem cell and regeneration, and modeling development and disease. The meeting will host workshops from industry leaders on clinical translation, and biotech entrepreneurs discussing new ventures and investment. Special sessions cover public policy, women in science, science and ethics, stem cell technology, and preclinical development of investigational stem cell products.

“The ISSCR 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting will be a different experience, however the Society’s focus is on providing the exceptional programming that is the cornerstone of the ISSCR mission,” said ISSCR President Deepak Srivastava. “I am excited that the virtual format may allow many more people to attend throughout the world in the midst of this pandemic.”
