CHICAGO — The International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) is accepting media registration in advance of “Global Controls in Stem Cells,” taking place November 5-7 in Singapore. The event is part of the ISSCR’s Regional Forum Series and is presented in partnership with the Stem Cell Society Singapore. This exciting meeting will explore the fundamental molecular mechanisms controlling cell identity with leaders in embryonic stem cell pluripotency, development and cellular reprogramming.

More than 400 stem cell scientists with an interest in global and epigenetic regulation of gene expression in cells during development, differentiation, disease, reprogramming and aging. Also, stem-cell related exhibitors with innovative technologies.

Biopolis, Matrix Building, Level 2, 30 Biopolis Street, Singapore 138671

November 5-7, 2014

Session topics include stem cells and cancer, chromatin dynamics, developmental biology of pluripotency, functional genomics, reprogramming, telomere and RNA biology. Keynote speakers are Rudolf Jaenisch, Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research, and Janet Rossant, Hospital for Sick Children. The program is available at scientific-program.  


About the ISSCR’s Regional Forum Series
Regional Forums are designed to facilitate international stem cell discourse throughout the year. These events are smaller than the ISSCR’s Annual Meeting by design, allowing for greater and more relaxed interaction between attendees. The strong programs include presentations by world thought leaders and are typically designed to explore a topic in depth.

About the International Society for Stem Cell Research (
The International Society for Stem Cell Research is an independent, nonprofit membership organization established to promote and foster the exchange and dissemination of information and ideas relating to stem cells, to encourage the general field of research involving stem cells and to promote professional and public education in all areas of stem cell research and application.

About Stem Cell Society Singapore (
The Stem Cell Society, Singapore (SCSS) was registered in January 2008. SCSS is a non-profit organization which seeks to serve the community with a threefold objective; (i) to bring together researchers, clinicians, health professionals, and companies interested in stem cells, (ii) to provide information to lay persons about stem cells and (iii) to provide a focus for all issues connected with stem cells.
