5th International Congress on Stem Cells and Tissue Formation
This event will take place in Dresden, Germany, from July 8 to 11, 2014. What has always set the conference in Dresden apart from other Stem Cell meetings world-wide is the strong foundation in developmental biology, the interdisciplinary scope, and the translational ambition, while at the same time still maintaining an intimate size that allows for ample direct interaction.
As in the years before, the congress will combine symposia on general principles and mechanisms of stem biology with more topically focused subjects in the area of hematopoietic stem cells, neural stem cells and diabetes. A large number of excellent speakers has followed the invitation to this year’s congress as for example Rudolf Jaenisch from the Whitehead Institute and Dept. of Biology, MIT; Jeffrey Macklis, Harvard Stem Cell Institute and Robin Ali, University College London. In order to encourage scientists to reach beyond their own immediate research area and to facilitate interdisciplinary discussions there will be no parallel sessions this year.
An industrial exhibition on innovative products within this field will accompany the conference.
