Online event

On the 16th of April 2021, the Dutch Society for Stem Cell Research (DSSCR) organizes an online 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 and possible selection for a pitch during the symposium.
