What is "GSCN on tour"?
The idea behind "GSCN on tour": Connect the local stem cell communities, exchange insights, data and contacts, get to know each other better - and get to know the German Stem Cell Network GSCN with it's many activities.
The GSCN wants to promote stem cell science in Germany by its different organs: The annual GSCN Conference, the workshops, the lectures, the network, the website and the various outreach activities. We are actively seeking new members, both individual, institutional and companies. If you are interested joining, please take a closer look here.
