Fostering Equity in Our Global Society

Melissa H. Little, Murdoch Children's Research Institute and University of Melbourne, Australia 

For the first time in the society’s 20-year history, we hosted a panel discussion on Equity in Stem Cell Science at the 2021 Annual Meeting. It was the start of an important conversation, and a step toward addressing inequalities among researchers and future patients the world over.

The ISSCR is seeking scientists at all career stages who would like to play an integral part in shaping the society’s role and defining practical steps to address gaps in equity. If interested, please email to share your story, research, and your vision for a more equitable environment in which stem cell researchers learn and thrive. Read more.
