Access a World of Discovery

ISSCR releases beta version of year-round digital platform.

ISSCR members now have access to ISSCR.DigitaI, delivering the society’s vast library of on-demand content, live events, and year-round opportunities to make international connections – all in one place.

The ISSCR built the platform on the back of the 2021 Annual Meeting technology, creating an experience that makes it easy to find scientific content based on self-selected research interests. Members can access past scientific programs like webinar series and International Symposia, explore upcoming programs, access new episodes of The Stem Cell Report podcast with Martin Pera, and connect with other scientists participating in ISSCR events.

ISSCR.Digital also delivers digital components of hybrid meetings, serving as an interface between in-person and remote attendees. Currently in its “beta” form, many ISSCR members, meeting attendees, and sponsors already have experienced the platform, which delivered the virtual Shanghai and Tokyo International Symposia earlier this year. Most recently, the ISSCR hosted the virtual component of the Jerusalem International Symposium, the society’s first hybrid event, on the new platform. And, for those attending the ISSCR 2022 Annual Meeting in San Francisco this June, ISSCR.Digital will serve as a central hub for all meeting content and connections.

The goal behind ISSCR.Digital is to make exceptional scientific programming more accessible for our international membership and facilitate new connections throughout the year.

I encourage all of you to visit ISSCR.Digital and let us know what you think. Please send feedback to isscr@isscr.org.

And a countdown to San Francisco…

With only two months to go, we are very excited about the forthcoming 2022 ISSCR Annual Scientific meeting (15-18 June in San Francisco or online with ISSCR.Digital). Our lineup of speakers has now been finalized with the selection of abstracts for oral presentation. Our registrations for both virtual and in person attendance is growing, and the 20th birthday celebrations are coming together. Don’t forget that Advance Registration closes on April 13. There are also options for group registration and concessions to assist those wishing to attend from ‘low and low-middle income’ countries.
