Applications open for School of Advanced Science on Stem Cell Biology

The school will highlight the latest scientific advances that are closing the gap between fundamental and applied research focused on stem cell therapy and tissue bioengineering; submissions will be accepted until February 28, 2023.

Meeting Announcement

Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo

The São Paulo School of Advanced Science on Stem Cell Biology will be held on September 16-24, 2023 in Ribeirão Preto, São Paulo state, Brazil. 

Reporters are invited to register for the scientific sessions and short courses, which will present state-of-art science and results of new research.

The School’s organization intends to promote a qualitative leap in bringing together national and international scientists to promote stem cell research among graduate students and young researchers. The goal of this program is to stimulate more interest and encourage research on stem cells so that Brazilian scientists can continue to play a significant global role in advancing the science and closing the gap between fundamental and applied research focused on stem cell therapy and tissue bioengineering.

The discussions on the School will benefit greatly from the participation of internationally renowned scientists as speakers, including Eftychia Apostolou, from Weill Cornell Medical College, Esteban Mazzoni, from New York University, Marius Wernig, from Stanford University, Eugenia Piddini, from the University of Bristol, and others.

Leading institution behind the School, the Federal University of São Paulo (UNIFESP) established a partnership with the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) to promote a two-day, course-ending international symposium featuring scientists from Latin America and across the globe.

As its title suggests, “From Concept to Clinic: Advances in Stem Cell Research” will showcase advances in understanding cellular plasticity through reprogramming and directed differentiation; also on the emerging field of tissue self-organization dynamics; and finally in modeling and treating diseases.

The São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) is supporting the event through its São Paulo School of Advanced Science Program (SPSAS Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who are already working on subjects relating to the school can apply to receive financial support to cover the cost of air travel, accommodation and meals. Applications must be submitted by February 28, 2023.
