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.
