Dear friends, partners and colleagues,

That was a great Annual GSCN Conference in Berlin with 400 scientists, 66 selected talks, 5 keynotes, 124 poster, 29 exhibitors, 3 GSCN awards, different workshops, a Non-PI meeting, an ELSA symposium, a public event with new GSCN videos … and all and everybody circling around stem cells.
Highlights were the keynotes by Kathrin Plath (Los Angeles), James Wells (Cincinnati), Shoukhrat Mitalipov (Portland), Lorenz Studer (New York) and  Pekka Katjisto (Helsinki/Stockholm). More highlight was the Presidential Symposium with a keynote by Anne Grapin-Botton (Dresden) and the talks of the GSCN awardess Nico Lachmann, Ana Martin-Villalba and Germàn Camargo Ortega. Overall it was an inspiring atmosphere with fantastic talks, great networking, very nice social events and it all lived by the engaged scientific community of the GSCN.

Working group discussions, two poster sessions, meet-the-expert-tables, an industry exhibition, extensive breaks and two evening events offered many opportunities for exciting discussions, academic exchange and reconnecting with old friends and colleagues. The conference did cover the latest findings in stem cell biology in Germany.

 Thank you very much to all participants and supporters and see you next year in Ulm to the 8th GSCN Annual Conference 2020. Save the date: 23 - 25 Sept 2020!

Yours sincerely,

Prof. Dr. Hartmut Geiger
