14th Dutch Stem Cell Meeting
2023 at 10:00 am
2023 at 5:30 pm
On the 20th of October 2023, the Dutch Society for Stem Cell Research (DSSCR) organizes the 14th Annual DSSCR symposium.
The aim of this meeting is to unite researchers from the Dutch stem cell community, thereby promoting exchange of ideas, data and future plans. This DSSCR meeting will provide a unique opportunity for master-students, PhD-students and early stage post-docs working on stem cells to present and discuss their work with the Dutch Stem Cell community in oral presentations that will be selected based on submitted abstracts.
Final year master-students, PhD-students and post-docs about to embark on their next career step in science are especially encouraged to submit an abstract and present their final results. The best oral presentation will be awarded a grant of €500.
Group leaders with a vacancy for a PhD or Post-doc position are also invited to send in their job advertisement for posting on the DSSCR website
Information & registration
14th Dutch Stem Cell Meeting will take place at Friday 20th October, 2023
This symposium will be held in the Pink lecture hall, UMCU, Utrecht. It starts at 10AM and finishes around 5PM.
For this symposium, we are delighted to announce the confirmation of three renowned keynote speakers in our stem cell field, Dr. Peter Rugg-Gunn, Dr. Tiago C. Luis and Prof. Rob Coppes. Peter Rugg-Gunn from the Babraham institute, Cambridge, UK is renowned for his outstanding research on the epigenome during early human development and stem cell differentiation. Tiago C. Luis from the Haematopoietic Stem Cells Laboratory, Imperical College London, UK is renowned about his study on the role of the bone marrow microenvironment in the regulation of blood stem cell function. Rob Coppens from UMCG, Groningen, NL is well known from his research in establishing salivary gland organoid cultures and recent translation of this research into the first salivary gland stem cell transplantation.
