8th GSCN Conference - goes virtual

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 Virtual 8th Annual Conference of the German Stem Cell Network (GSCN). The conference will be held from 23 - 25 September 2020 and will reflect the complete program of the planned physically GSCN Annual Conference.

International keynote lectures, concurrent sessions, working group discussions, a presidential invite, two poster sessions, meet-the-expert-tables and an industry exhibition – everything will be transferred into an online-version. We are expecting a succesful conference. Video chats and breakout rooms will give space for exciting discussions, academic exchange and reconnecting with old friends and colleagues. The online 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).

We are looking forward to welcoming you online for our Virtual 8th Annual GSCN Conference! Be part of the community and make this event a success.

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 GSCN conference participants is our top priority. For this reason, we will follow the guidelines of the responsible authorities – and turn the Annual GSCN Meeting into a Virtual Event. The organization of the GSCN Annual Conference 2020 is proceeding as planned and the conference will take place with all program items online. Due to the change in systems, we offer every GSCN member a free registration fee! Every regular student non-member will be charged 50 €, every regular non-member accepts a fee of 130 €. Please check the registration details. We therefore encourage you to register as well as to submit abstracts for the scientific program.
