A great 6th Annual GSCN Conference: stimulating stem cell meeting in Heidelberg

 

The Annual GSCN Conference 2018 welcomed more than 400 participants, offered three joining symposia and attracted 28 companies to the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) in Heidelberg from 19 - 21 September 2018.

Heidelberg was the German capital of stem cell research for three days and more – around 400 scientists from Germany and other countries met at the DKFZ to exchange new findings and technologies. This annual meeting 2018 had some new features: As a kaleidoscope, several symposia flourished along the GSCN conference: a big symposium on 13 projects about innovative stem cell technologies for individualized medicine, funded by the ministry of education and research (BMBF), a Non PI-Workshop and an ELSA-Symposium about ethical, legal and social aspects of stem cell research.
Highlights were the international key notes framing the conference with Leonard Zon, Alex Schier und William Pu, (all Cambridge, US) and Allison Bardin (Paris) as well as Jianlong Wang (New York, US). Another outstanding highlight was the Presidential Symposium with keynote speaker Steve Goldman (Rochester / Copenhagen) and the presentations of the GSCN Awardees Nina Cabezas Wallscheid (GSCN Junior Investigator Award), Maria Elena Torres-Padilla (GSCN Female Scientist Award) and Maja Milanovic / Clemens Schmitt (GSCN Publication of the Year).
The conference offered space for a large industry exhibition with 28 booths, two interesting poster sessions, 60 talks, a get-together and a GSCN Network evening. Lots of possibilities to network, foster relationships, discuss with collaborators and find out about new technologies. A well-visited public event on Friday evening showed the perspectives of stem cell research to an interested lay audience in the Mathematikon.

GSCN Awards
The three GSCN awards are endowed with 1'500 euros each, and the prizewinners will give a lecture at the Presidential Symposium on 20 September at this year's GSCN Stem Cell Conference from 19 - 21 September 2018 in Heidelberg.

GSCN school material:

"Understanding Stem Cells - The conference for schools"

 

The GSCN and the Schering Stiftung developed new material about stem cells for high schools in German. The four units á 90 minutes cover the topics "Basics, Ethics, Therapies, Genetics" and offer an insight into the wide area of stem cells and related fields. Teachers find a didactic concept based on elements of a scientific conference - students slip into the role of scientists and give key lectures, present posters and discuss on panels about all kind of aspects about stem cells.
