10th International Meeting of the Stem Cell Network NRW now a virtual conference

12/21/2020   News

The Covid-19 pandemic continues to have the world firmly in its grip. Therefore, it was decided to turn the 10th International Meeting on March 29 and 30, 2021, into a virtual conference and cancel the face-to-face event planned in Aachen.

As the pandemic is, unfortunately, still not contained and since visitors and speakers of the congress shall not be exposed to incalculable risks, the Stem Cell Network NRW is now preparing a virtual conference instead of a face-to-face event. This decision was not made lightly, since a virtual meeting will clearly not be the same as an on-site congress. The Stem Cell Network NRW had been looking forward to meeting many friends, fellow researchers, and colleagues in person at the Eurogress Aachen. However, also at the virtual conference on March 29 and 30, 2021, the organization committee is committed to delivering the same exciting and inspiring scientific program typical of the International Meetings of the Stem Cell Network NRW. A concept that offers lots of opportunities for participation and networking is being developed. In addition to 15 lectures by stem cell researchers from the USA, Japan, and various European countries, there will also be “Meet the expert” breakout sessions, an industry exhibition, and opportunities for direct exchange with the speakers and other renowned scientists. Furthermore, researchers can submit abstracts for presentations, which will be selected by a panel of reviewers.

The congress website will continually be updated with further information.
