International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) Annual Meeting
The ISSCR is an independent, nonprofit organization formed in 2002 to foster the exchange of information on stem cell research.
The ISSCR Annual Meeting provides an opportunity to hear groundbreaking research from all areas of stem cell science, and is recognized as the largest stem cell research meeting in the world. The meeting is an excellent forum for scientists to present and discuss their latest research with participants from academic, industry, and government settings from around the world.
Stem cell center Director, Dr. Owen Witte, was a featured speaker at the 8th Annual Meeting held in San Francisco, California
Broad Centers’ Retreat
In order to advance the stem cell research field, the Broad Foundations have generously named three stem cell centers in California: UCLA, USC and UCSF. The first annual tri-institutional Broad Centers’ Retreat was held April 14th -16th at the Asilomar Conference Grounds in Pacific Grove on the Monterey Peninsula. The retreat provides a unique opportunity for faculty, postdocs, and graduate students from each stem cell center to meet in an informal setting to share their research and foster future scientific collaborations.
