"This year's ISSCR Annual Meeting will bring our global community the most exciting advances in stem cell science and regenerative medicine in innovative ways that will keep you engaged from beginning to end," Christine Mummery, ISSCR President said. "The program is designed around five core themes so you can find the latest science and new collaborators in your research areas more easily. I am particularly thrilled that we will be rebroadcasting key sessions of the program with live chat 12 hours after the first airing to facilitate an interactive experience for our global audience."

Not only will the meeting feature unpublished, breaking research exploring new technologies and clinical applications of stem cell research, but key sessions of the program will be rebroadcast 12 hours after the initial session time with live chat for those living in Asia and Europe regions. Delivering flexible viewing times for ISSCR's international attendees by rebroadcasting sessions with interactive capabilities and offering on-demand viewing options for registrants through the end of July makes the meeting even more accessible for our community.

Each day is focused around one or more of five, defined scientific themes that guide attendees to key sessions aligned with research interests. Attendees will be able to take in poster sessions at flexible times throughout the meeting where video chat capabilities will enhance the experience. The ISSCR 2021 Virtual Annual Meeting platform also will allow for personalized program recommendations based on each attendee's specified areas of interest.
