Since 2002, the Stem Cell Network North Rhine-Westphalia organizes its International Meeting every two years. The 11th International Meeting on May 16/17, 2023 will bring together stem cell researchers from around the world in the Eurogress Aachen. The diverse and exciting program covers the broad spectrum of stem cell research with seven sessions on topics such as “How to house stem cells – recreating niches“, “The patients are waiting – clinical application of stem cells” or “Effective and non-effective tissue regeneration“. In addition to presentations by top international stem cell researchers from the USA and various European countries, the conference will also include contributions on ethical, legal and social aspects of stem cell research. There will also be a large industry exhibition, poster sessions for junior scientists to take the opportunity to present their research and a networking event. The language of the international conference is English.
