Dear friends, participants, partners and colleagues,
„Finally we met again“ – GSCN Conference in Dresden 2021 was a great success
A special event: 300 scientists met in person at the GSCN Conference in Dresden from 6 to 8 October and the atmosphere was characterized by great joy and cordiality to finally meet again in person after a year and a half of pandemic (and countless video meetings). Hugs, smiles, intense presence, deep discussions, and a special attentive dense concentration in the lecture halls marked this year’s GSCN Conference. “Great to see you again” was the welcome greeting between friends and colleagues. Even though it wasn’t that easy to enter the conference venue at the Center for Regenerative Therapies (CRTD), 2G plus daily testing at the venue demanded some time and patience from every participant, the atmosphere was very positive. The GSCN Conference was a great success: With 6 international keynotes, 68 talks in concurrent sessions, more than 100 posters, 26 industry exhibitors, the GSCN non-PI-meeting and the start of the GSCN Mentoring Program with 5 newly chosen mentees. It was a full and fascinating scientific program.
Next year, the 10th GSCN Conference will take place from 13 – 16 September 2022 in Münster – be part of it and see you there!
Professor Dr. Hans Schöler
(GSCN President for the Program Committee)
