Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It has been a great pleasure to seeing you at the 4th International Annual Conference of the German Stem Cell Network (GSCN) in Hannover. The 4th GSCN Conference was hosted by the Hannover Medical School and the Cluster of Excellence REBIRTH.

Please find the meeting report  here and a short report from Rebirth, MHH  here.

The 4rd Annual Conference of the GSCN welcomed over 400 participants and 35 companies to the Hannover Medical School in Hannover from 12 - 14 September 2016.

During the intense three days the community presented the newest results in oral and poster presentations. The conference again offered extensive possibilities to network, discuss with existing collaborators and forge new interactions. The largest industry exhibition of all GSCN annual conferences with 35 booths of partnering companies offered the possibilities to learn about the new technologies and products for the field and foster the interactions with the private sector. A non-PI meeting of 24 keen young scientists followed the official program on Thursday 15 Sept. 2016. As in previous years a well-attended public event on Wednesday evening presented the advances of stem cell research to an interested lay audience (public event 2016).

One highlight among many others was the Presidential Symposium with this years winners of the GSCN awards:
