Mission and synopsis

The German Stem Cell Network (GSCN) aims at creating synergies between all areas of basic and applied stem cell research and to provide an interface between science, education, politics and society as a whole.

The central task of the GSCN is to pool the expertise in stem cell research in Germany and develop synergies between basic research, regenerative medicine and pharmacology. The initiative promotes innovative research activities on a national and international level. In addition, targeted information and events are offered to encourage the public discourse on stem cell research.

Since 1 January 2021 the GSCN works in a tight cooperation with the Berlin Institute of Health (BIH).  The GSCN and the BIH have formed a "Dialog Platform Stem Cell Research" as a project to foster stem cell research as basic science and in the translation.


  • To maintain an organizational structure for a German network for basic and applied stem cell research;
  • To organize joint annual conferences on stem cell research to be rotated among German cities;
  • To maintain scientific and strategic working groups;
  • To provide a web-based platform for communication on stem cell research, enabling exchange of important news, discussions and networking between scientists, institutions, policy-makers and the general public (in German and English);
