Skokie, IL – The ISSCR 2022 Annual Meeting is The Global Stem Cell Event, gathering scientists in stem cell research and regenerative medicine from around the world. Taking place 15-18 June 2022, this world-renowned event offers attendees the opportunity to share the latest science and breakthroughs, collaborate, and network. Registration is open for the Annual Meeting and for the pre-meeting Workshop on Clinical Translation held 14 June 2022. To be considered for one of more than 100 speaking opportunities, submit an abstract by 9 February.

“The Annual Meeting is always a highlight of my year,” ISSCR President Melissa Little said. “It’s a chance to reconnect with friends and colleagues and a source of creativity and inspiration.” The society also is celebrating its 20th year and will host a celebration of scientific excellence, achievements, and breakthroughs over the last two decades.

ISSCR 2022 will showcase unpublished, breaking research exploring new technologies and clinical applications of stem cell research and regenerative medicine – all while allowing attendees to choose their own experience whether in person or virtual. All in person attendees also will have access to the ISSCR’s virtual meeting platform, which will host scientific sessions on demand for 30 days. For the second  year, the program is designed around five core themes designed to help attendees find the latest science and new collaborators in specific research areas more easily.
