CiRA 2017 International Symposium

Fri 14 Jul 2017

The Center for iPS Cell Research and Application (CiRA) organizes international symposia on a regular basis to widely disseminate its findings and to advance research on induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells.

Scheduled for 6-8 November 2017, this symposium will mark the 10th anniversary of the discovery of human iPS cells by addressing a broad range of related topics, including basic research on pluripotency, cutting-edge technologies, and novel applications for stem cells.

All stem cell researchers and students are welcome to attend, and are encouraged to apply for the poster sessions.
