Welcome to the Berlin Stem Cell Club

The Berlin Stem Cell Club BSCC is the new club in town - we invite each month on the first Thursday analogue and digital to a meeting in Berlin. Let's discuss science, meet and network, get closer. In each meeting there will be a slot for an external speaker (30 min) and 1 short talk from a Berlin speaker. Member labs take turns to organize the meeting.
The BSCC is sponsored by BIH Organoid Hub and GSCN.
