8th GSCN Conference

Dear friends, partners and colleagues,

The German Stem Cell Network (GSCN) aims to foster basic and applied stem cell research in Germany. We cordially invite you to the 8th Annual Conference of the German Stem Cell Network (GSCN) in Ulm. The conference will be held from 23 - 25 September 2020 and be hosted by the Ulm University. Like in recent years we expect around 400 participants.

International keynote lectures, concurrent sessions, working group discussions, a presidential invite, two poster sessions, meet-the-expert-tables, an industry exhibition, extensive breaks and two evening events will offer many opportunities for exciting discussions, academic exchange and reconnecting with old friends and colleagues. The conference will cover the latest findings in stem cell biology in Germany.

Since promotion of junior scientists is an aim of the GSCN, most speakers are selected from the best abstracts that have been submitted. Again, awardees of the GSCN prizes will present their results during the Presidential Symposium. The program will be exciting and cover a wide range of topics of this fast-growing field of research. The keynote presentations will be delivered by Christine Mummery (Leiden, NL), Bertie Göttgens (Cambridge, UK), Shahragim Tajbakhsh (Paris, FR), Jonathan Kimmelman (Montreal, CAN) and Marius Wernig (Stanford, US).

Ulm is great place for a conference: With a well-equipped university, the highest church tower in Germany and the reputation of being the birthplace of Albert Einstein, it is a lovely city with good train connections and welcoming hotels.

We look forward to welcoming you in Ulm!

Yours sincerely,
Prof. Dr. Hartmut Geiger
(GSCN President for the Program Committee)

Information on corona pandemic

The SARS coronavirus-2 (SARS-Cov-2) is currently causing severe restrictions on public life worldwide. The health and safety of all GSCN conference participants is our top priority. For this reason, we will follow the guidelines and recommendations of the responsible authorities. 
At the present time, we are still planning to hold the GSCN Annual Conference in Ulm in September 2020. However, we will closely monitor further developments.
We therefore encourage you to register as well as to submit abstracts for the scientific program. We might have to limit the participant numbers at the conference (first come, first serve). Payment for all registration fees is accepted only after 24 July when we will have a better understanding of the situation.
