On behalf of the Organising Committee, thank you for attending the 8th Annual Meeting of the Australasian Society for Stem Cell Research (ASSCR); a 2nd joint meeting with Stem Cells Australia and 1st joint meeting with the New South Wales Stem Cell Network. The conference brought together distinguished scientists, clinician researchers and industry professionals dedicated to stem cell research and translation.
This year’s meeting was held in the spectacular Hunter Valley at a particularly picturesque time of year when gardens abound with flowers, the vines come to life, and the weather is terrific. Above all else though, it represents a chance to share in the excitement of stem cell science and discoveries across a diverse and engaging program covering emerging stem cell technologies, commercialization and company models, clinical translation with stem cells, stem cell biology and differentiation, pluripotency and reprogramming, epigenetics and bioengineering.
Many thanks to everyone who participate from both the region and beyond.
We are grateful for the support of the meeting sponsors and exhibitors.
