10th GSCN Conference & 20 Years Stem Cell Network NRW

The German Stem Cell Network (GSCN) welcomes you to the 10th GSCN Conference from 13 – 16 September 2022 at the Halle Münsterland in Münster.

The conference will cover the latest findings in stem cell biology and is THE meeting to be for a large number of stem cell researchers in Germany. This year it will be a Joint Anniversary Event: The 10th  GSCN Conference & 20 Years Stem Cell Network NRW, which will organize a special symposium in Münster. Because of the joint anniversary, the GSCN Conference will take place for 4 days instead of the usual 3 days.

We expect around 400+ participants, excellent international keynotes, an exciting Presidential Symposium with the GSCN Awardees, a non-PI Meeting, an ELSA Symposium, the NRW Symposium, lots of sessions and much more with the presentation of new findings and intense discussions about new data, two poster sessions and two social events to get back together in person and network! An interesting and broad industry exhibition will offer latest technologies and personal contact as well as a set of sessions.

Regarding the pandemic: SARS Cov-2 still causes severe restrictions on public life worldwide and we cannot foresee the development yet. The health and safety of all GSCN conference participants is our top priority. For this reason, we will continue to monitor developments closely in 2022 and follow the guidelines and recommendations of the relevant authorities.

Please join us for the 10th GSCN Conference – be part of the community, be part of the networking, the discussions, and the joy to meet again!

We would be pleased to welcome you in Münster!

With best regards,

Professor Dr. Hans Schöler
